TAMPA (FOX 13) -

The lights are back on at the University of South Florida campus and the surrounding area after an outage left some students in the dark during their exams.

A spokesperson for Tampa Electric blamed a neighborhood substation for the outage, which affected nearly 4,000 customers at its peak. 

The university notified students of the outage via the emergency text alert system, but scheduled exams continued as planned.

USF, Moffitt Cancer Center, and other locations were affected.

Meanwhile, there was a separate, smaller outage in the WestShore area of Tampa affecting nearly 1,000 people.
