According to Duke Energy’s outage map, a large area approximately between Roxboro Street and Fayetteville Road north of Interstate 40 was without electricity from just before noon Saturday until about 2:15 p.m.
The map also showed that a small area south of I-40 was affected.
According to the map, the outage was caused by “a vehicle damaging our equipment.”
