CARY, N.C. — About 2,700 lost power in Cary for nearly three hours early Thursday evening.
Authorities said a power line was spliced underneath the intersection of Cary Parkway and Laura Duncan Road.
A gas line connected to the spliced line also ruptured and blew off a manhole cover.
The break caused a strong odor of natural gas in the area. Crews fixed the problem around 7 p.m.
