CENTERVILLE — A power outage left thousands of Davis County residents in the dark and delayed FrontRunner commuters Monday evening.
The Utah Transit Authority reported "significant delays" to its northbound and southbound FrontRunner trains in Centerville just after 6 p.m. Lingering delays of five to seven minutes were still in effect at 7:45 p.m., UTA reported.
About 3,240 Rocky Mountain Power customers in Centerville and West Bountiful were without electricity at about 8:30 p.m. The company estimated on its website that power would be restored by 10 p.m.
The number of affected customers decreased to just over 1,000 shortly after 9 p.m.
No cause for the outage was immediately apparent, Rocky Mountain Power spokesman Dave Eskelsen said at about 8:30 p.m.
“We’ve had a couple troubleshooters toe the line, and they couldn’t find any obvious trouble,” Eskelsen said. “We are actively working on it.”
Workers later determined it was an equipment breakdown.
Centerville police reported a traffic light at 400 West malfunctioned because of the loss of power. The department took to Twitter to ask motorists to treat the intersection as a four-way stop.
