Walmart on Billings west end had to turn away customers for a while Wednesday morning after a power outage. NorthWestern Energy says nearly 1,300 customers, mostly commercial, were affected by the outage.

They say it happened just before 9am and lasted about 40 minutes. A spokesperson for NorthWestern Energy says the outage was caused by a switching error as crews were working in a substation nearby.
