A power outage has caused traffic issues in the Suncrest area of Morgantown, according to the Morgantown Police.

In a statement, the Morgantown chief of police said that the power outage was caused by a transformer fire, which has shut down traffic lights in the area.

Police are signaling in high traffic areas, but are unable to do so at every intersection. Police advise drivers to treat any intersection where traffic lights aren’t functioning and there is no police presence, as a four-way stop.

It is unknown when the situation will be resolved.
