— The Streets at Southpoint and surrounding areas in Durham lost power for about two hours Sunday evening.

According to Duke Energy, about 1,600 people lost power just after 5:30 p.m.

The outage was caused by damage to equipment that was caused when the top of the power pole fell over, according to Duke Energy.

Power had been restored to most by about 8 p.m. and was expected to be restored to the Southpoint mall overnight.
