A power outage affected Metro Transit Green Line trains Tuesday morning.

According to Metro Transit, mechanical and power-related issues occurred in downtown St. Paul and affected westbound trains.


Additionally, officials said some eastbound trains might end their routes at the Central station instead of the Union Depot station.

Metro Transit officials had asked riders to listen to announcements made on trains and platforms for updates.

Just after 9 a.m., Metro Transit reported the issues had been resolved and that service had returned to normal.

Meanwhile, Xcel Energy reported power was back on for most St. Paul residents just after 8 a.m. and that remaining residents without power would have power restored within the hour.
