An underground cable failure caused a power outage in Center City. The problem knocked out power to a T.G.I. Fridays restaurant, the Embassy Suites and another building at 17th Street and Ben Franklin Parkway.

The buildings were evacuated.

PECO fixed the cable shortly after 9:00 p.m. The power was restored just before 10:00.
