Power outages were reported at the National Zoo Sunday morning but resolved by the afternoon. No one was injured and the animals were safe.

The zoo was experiencing a problem in one of the power substations, said National Zoo spokeswoman Pamela Baker-Masson.

As of 12:47 p.m., the power problem had been resolved.

All animals are safe, she said.

It was not immediately known if the outages were due to the weather.
