Power has been restored after an outage that affected thousands of customers and darkened several traffic lights in New Castle County.

Delmarva Power spokeswoman Bridget Shelton says about 4,800 customers in the New Castle area were affected by the outage that lasted less than two hours Thursday morning.

Shelton says the outage was caused by an equipment failure at a substation.
