Power has been restored to several hundred people in Quispamis but, over 200 are still in the dark.
NB Power spokesperson Marianne Limpert says the power outtage was caused by a broken pole.
She says that is usually caused by high winds or a vehicle accident.
She expects that power will be restored to everyone between 8:30pm and 9:30pm this evening.
Limpert says the lights went out just after 3:30 this afternoon.
