Power knocked out in Ptown
- All of Provincetown lost power about 2 PM. The outage came as the Centennial Celebration of the Pilgrim Monument was underway. Traffic jammed at Route 6 and Conwell Street as the signal lights went out. Power was restored a little over a half hour later. NStar has been making major improvements to the Outer Cape power grid.  Another outage occurred about 4 AM a few mornings ago. NStar says today's outage was caused by a blown fuse and equipment failure. Editors note: The power failure disrupted service on our live fire scanner. Sorry for the delay but service has now been restored-TC.
