New Bern Power Outage

A string of businesses in New Bern's busiest section of town lost powre Monday night.

Jeff Jones with the city of New Bern's electric utilities division says most of the downtown area lost power around 6:20 Monday evening.

The outage affected about a dozen shops and restaurants from south Front street to the river, including the New Bern Riverfront Convention Center, Harvey Mansion, and the Hilton.

Crews were working on repairing a transformer, Jones said. The Hilton told WITN the power was restored to them around 11 p.m. Monday.
