Nearly 1,900 Xcel Energy customers in Grand Forks had a "momentary outage" Saturday evening, according to the senior communications representative.

Bonnie Lund said the flicker happened just after 6 p.m., primarily affecting customers along the Red River between DeMers Avenue and Gateway Drive.

She said the incident was reported as a "momentary outage," what some would call a flicker of power. The cause is listed as unknown, a common thing for the nature of these types of outages, she said.

"With something like that, they often will patrol the lines," she said. "But if the power doesn't stay out, sometimes they don't find what the problem was."

Customers had their power restored in less than a minute.
