Some 7,000 Wake Electric customers in the Heritage area of Wake Forest lost power Friday afternoon.

The cause of the outage wasn't immediately available.

Pictures from Chopper 11 showed police officers directing traffic at major intersections because traffic lights were out.

The problem began just after 3 p.m. and power was restored around 4 p.m.
