    MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa - A flash and loud boom around 10 p.m. Thursday night signaled an equipment failure at a substation next to the power plant, according to Justin Foss with Alliant Energy.

    The failure led to an outage that left at least 9,000 customers without power in Marshall County. As of 12:45 Friday morning, Alliant's website showed power had been restored to those whose service was interrupted.

    The failure was contained to the substation, and the power plant was not involved, Foss said. The Marshalltown Fire Department said it did not receive any dispatches related to the equipment failure.
