MARCO ISLAND — Power was reported out for 2200 customers, City Public Information Coordinator Lisa Douglass announced Wednesday afternoon.
Tommie Barfield Elementary School, Marco Island Charter Middle School and Mackle Park were within the area without electricity.
Linemen were immediately dispatched to the area to locate the cause of the power outage.
Lee County Electric Cooperative spokeswoman Karen Ryan reported that the outage, which occurred shortly before 12 p.m., was caused by nesting osprey.
Power was restored to both schools and all customers shortly before 1 p.m.
"A lot of the times when the osprey are building their nests a stick may come in contact with the lines and cause the outage," Ryan said.
