HOUSTON -- Widespread power outages slowed things down in Montrose Tuesday night. There were several intersections left dark because of problems at a CenterPoint substation.

Around 8,000 people were without power from 6:30 p.m. to about 8 p.m., including the people at a Rice University basketball game.

CenterPoint isn't sure what caused the outages, but said it was not weather-related.
