    A power outage affected parts of the UConn campus in Storrs on Thursday evening.

    The outage impacted buildings, which were mostly dorms in the central and western parts of the campus, a UConn representative told NBC Connecticut. 

    The representative said there was no one in the dorms because the spring semester has not started yet. 

    The school is building a new utility tunnel and a manhole in the construction area exploded. Two big circuits were knocked out as a result.

    No injuries or damages to any buildings were been reported. 

    The power was restored a short time later.
