BOSTON (CBS) – Around 25,000 National Grid customers on the North Shore lost power Monday morning.

The outages reached their peak at around 5:45 a.m.

That number was later reduced to 6,000 customers on Cape Ann without power.

Crews finally restored power to the majority of residents in the area after 7 a.m.

“This large number of customers out indicates that we did have initially a transmission line problem,” said National Grid spokesperson Debbie Drew.

The cause of the outages is not known.
