A power outage early this morning cut off electric service to the University of Cincinnati main campus and the UC Medical Center, but it was restored before noon.
The campus and UC Medical Center were without power from shortly after 8 a.m. until 11:20, according to tweets from the university and UC president Santa Ono. The hospital kept operating on a back-up power system.
The university has its own power grid which is fed electricity by Duke Energy. It is not known what caused the outage at the UC substation.

A new Cincinnati Children's Hospital survey finds one-third of teen girls actually have an in-person meeting with somebody they met online.

Noll says the meeting part is scary for this age even though plenty of adults do it.
