Brief Power Outage in Downtown Manchester

A portion of downtown Manchester was without power for a short time on Thursday.

Homes and businesses along Franklin Street and East Delaware Street lost electricity, with the Delaware County Courthouse among those affected. The courthouse was closed for about two hours until power was restored.

Alliant Energy says the power went out shortly before 10:30 am and was restored during the noon hour.

They say the outage was caused by a broken piece of equipment.
