COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Wednesday night a portion of the Columbus Regional Medical Center experienced a power outage.

Four Georgia Power transformers services the hospital and one of those transformers blew,  leaving about 25% of the hospital without power.

No critical care or intensive care units were affected.  Hospital officials tell us there is emergency power in use in the affected areas.

Power to that portion of the hospital was restored overnight.
