Downtown Salem loses power

SALEM — A large section of downtown Salem lost power for two hours this afternoon.

The outage, which covered an area from Lafayette Street to St. Peter Street, lasted from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. and impacted 700 customers, according to National Grid. It knocked out power in downtown businesses, the Museum Place Mall garage and several traffic lights.

The outage appeared to be caused by an underground cable failure, according to a National Grid spokeswoman.
