Power Outage Disrupts Lunch Hour Uptown

To the delight of those working and living uptown and some in the north end,  the power is back.

A power outage just before noon made finding lunch difficult as the City Market, Brunswick Square and Market Square were in the dark and closed.

City of Saint John employee Linda Lockhart tells CHSJ News she decided to leave work when the light went out and try to find some lunch.

She tells us she finally found lunch at Tim's on King Street and she had just enough cash to pay it since the debit machines were not working.

Along with the power outage, traffic lights were out in the Uptown, parts of the North end and at Haymarket Square.  

 Police were on hand directing traffic at some intersections.
