Some businesses near Cortana Mall lost power Friday for a few minutes while others in the area lost power for two hours.

There was a connection failure on a transmission line that caused the outage, Entergy spokeswoman Charlotte Cavell said Friday afternoon.

All customers in the area had power back up by 1 p.m., Cavell said.

Businesses in the Cortana Mall area up and down Airline Highway and Florida Boulevard and up to Choctaw Drive were affected, Cavell said.
