Power Outage Reported On Wildwood Boardwalk

WILDWOOD, N.J., (CBS) – A power outage was reported at the boardwalk in Wildwood, New Jersey.

The incident was reported around 9:15 p.m. Monday.

A spokesperson for Morey's Piers says a power surge caused a section of Morey's Surfside Pier to lose power and as a result about 14 rides had to be evacuated, including The Great Nor'easter and a few other moderate thrill rides.

All guests were safely evacuated from the rides without incident.

The spokesperson says power was restored around 10:30 p.m. with a majority of the rides opening for the remainder of the night.

No injuries were reported.

The cause remains under investigation.
