A power outage affected people in much of downtown and East Duluth on Thursday afternoon.

The outage began at 2:43 p.m. Thursday and lasted just over a half hour.  Minnesota Power said nearly 5,600 homes and businesses in downtown and East Duluth were affected at the peak.

Stoplights were not working for a time in downtown Duluth due to the outage.

WDIO/WIRT and Me-TV, along with other Duluth TV and radio stations, were knocked off the air but have now returned to regular programming.
