(ABC 6 News) -- We are getting reports of power outages in the Rochester area.

Rochester Public Utilities says several crews are out as about 3000 homes are without power this evening. 

RPU says some homes in Northwest Rochester should have their power back on within the hour.

We have video sent to us by a viewer of a transformer explosion in the southwest part of town. We're not sure if that's connected to the power outages.
We are working to get more information. Stay with ABC 6 News for the very latest.
