Power has been restored in Destin after 6,000 customers were without power this morning.

Representatives from Gulf Power told The Log that "an issue with the substation" in Destin was to blame for the outage that knocked out power in patches from HarborWalk Village to Airport Road.

Deputies from the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office were at the city's powerless intersections guiding motorists along on their morning commutes.

Customers were without power for about 45 minutes.
