KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The KCMO City Hall and Jackson Courthouse were closed Thursday after a water main break.
City Hall doesn't typically open until 8 a.m., but Kansas City City Manager Troy Schulte tweeted about a delayed opening just after 6:30 a.m. to keep residents from being inconvenienced if they planned to stop by Thursday morning.
City spokesperson Chris Hernandez said it is unclear when power will be restored. City Hall employees will be working at alternative locations, such as city buildings that have power.
A spokesperson for Kansas City Power and Light told FOX4 they are still working to determine what caused the outage and how widespread it is.
The Kansas City Missouri Municipal Courthouse, which is across the street, has not been affected by the power outage at City Hall. Municipal court will be open as usual Thursday at 8 a.m. and remain open until 5 p.m. All court hearings will proceed as scheduled.
Jackson County Courthouse is closed though due to a water main break that caused the basement to flood affecting the electrical areas of the building.
The Historic Truman Courthouse, 112 W. Lexington Avenue in Independence, will be open during normal business hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
