Town officials said you can chalk up the overnight power outage in Winterville to bad breakers.
Town Manager Terri Parker tells WITN power went out for some residents before 9 p.m. Tuesday night and was off for nearly an hour and a half in some places.
According to Parker, breakers apparently malfunctioned at the Old Tar substation, causing the outage.
Parker said the electric department had not yet provided the Town with the number of people who were in the dark.
