TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Service has been restored after a large power outage caused a service disruption for more than an estimated 10,000 Tucson Electric Power customers on Friday, June 10.

According to TEP, repairs were made to an underground cable. No information was immediately available about a possible cause for the damage.

At one point during the outage, the TEP outage map showed several outages in the area near Davis-Monthan Air Force Base from Swan Road to Camino Seco and south of 22nd Street to Irvington Road. The outage lasted a little over an hour and power was restored at about 1:45 p.m.

Meanwhile, traffic lights were malfunctioning during the outage at at least three intersections: Golf Links Road/Craycroft Road, Craycroft Road/29th Street, and Wilmot Road and 29th Street. It was unknown if the light malfunctions were directly related to the power outage.

After power was restored, only one intersection - Golf Links/Craycroft - was still experiencing light malfunctions.
