Downed Power Line Snarls Traffic

Traffic is back to normal after a power outage Monday morning knocked out more than a dozen stoplights, some at pretty major intersections. The power also went out to more than a thousand homes in Greenville.

Greenville Police say they dispatched officers to help direct traffic when about 15 stoplights went out, mainly between the Stantonsburg and Memorial intersection to the intersection of Memorial and Arlington.

Greenville Utilities says the power outage lasted from 7:31 a.m. through 7:57 a.m. Monday. A power line down at the corner of Tyson and Third St. was the culprit, officials say.

A total of 1,048 GUC customers lost power, according to the utility company.
