People were shopping in stores and eating a restaurants when suddenly they found themselves in the dark. It was a challenge for managers at restaurants like Baker St. Pub.
“Everything just went dark,” said Chad Walter. “We had a decent crowd when the lights went out.”
Not a light was shining in the area off the Kilpatrick Turnpike, except for cars. Traffic was a near standstill around 6:30 Thursday evening because people in the area bolted out of the dark stores and headed home.
The lights were back on before 9:15 pm.
