    Universal Studios Florida was hit by a power outage Friday morning, prompting the Orlando Fire Department to help remove passengers from two rides before hour was restored, NBC affiliate WESH reported

    The Orlando Fire Department said on Twitter that the outage impacted the Transformers and Men in Black rides and there were "no reports of distress." 

    Eleven people were taken off the Transformers ride in a "routine rescue," and OFD was "checking elevators for anyone who may be stuck," the department wrote in a follow-up tweet. 

    The park-wide outage was reported before 10 a.m. and Transformers riders were still being helped off an hour later, WESH reported. 

    Universal's Islands of Adventure did not lose power, the station said.

    The theme-park said on Twitter at 11:55 a.m. that power had been restored and all rides would be operational "soon."
