LAS CRUCES, New Mexico (KVIA) -- The NMSU campus is experiencing a power outage Thursday.
El Paso Electric tells ABC-7 that a bird flew into a substation, causing the outage. Crews are currently working to restore power.
Most buildings on campus are without power, according to NMSU officials.
"All classes beginning at noon or 1 p.m. are cancelled campus wide, including online classes," a university spokesperson told ABC-7. "Some buildings are already coming back online."
