NORFOLK -- A failed underground cable threw portions of downtown and Ghent into darkness for just over an hour Sunday night.

A Virginia Power spokesman said 870 customers were affected about 9:45 p.m. when the cable, located near Nauticus, failed.

Among the areas affected were Freemason Harbor, Front Street, Hague Towers and the Eastern Virginia Medical School.

Service was fully restored at 11 p.m., when affected customers were switched to other circuits.
