Power was restored for the thousands of Saint John residents and businesses who experienced an outage Wednesday.

Saint John Energy began receiving calls about outages at around 3:20 Wednesday afternoon from customers in the south end. More than 4,000 Saint John residents and businesses were without power 

By 5:30 p.m., power was restored for all customers impacted. 

The utility's manager of stakeholder relations, Jessica DeLong, said the cause was a loss of power supply from NB Power. 

NB Power didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
