A power outage in Easton, Palmer Township, and Wilson Borough has cut electricity to hundreds of people and numerous traffic lights.

Homes, businesses and traffic lights are in dark across the three municipalities, Communications Officials said.

Close to 800 Met-Ed customers have been affected, according to the company's website.

There is no definite work on what caused all of the outages but it may have been caused by a "cherry picker" trucker that hit a power line, Communications officials said.
