POTTSTOWN, PA — Several hours after a temporary power outage plunged more than 2,000 people around the borough into darkness on Tuesday, PECO crews determined the cause of the problem.

The outage occurred around 10:40 a.m. and impacted 2,250 customers. Power to all but five customers was restored around 11 a.m.

“It was not a malfunction and it was not weather related,” Smore said.
