Electric line crews continue to investigate a power outage at the East Gate commercial area, which began in 3 a.m. today.

The Department of Public Utilities estimates that the outage is affecting 15-20 business suites.

Crewmen have the underground fault isolated to within 800 to 1,000 feet of line, but this afternoon's rain is a hindrance, DPU said, adding that it's currently unable to estimate when power will be restored.

Check back for updates.
