A 10-minute power outage in Battle Ground impacted area businesses Thursday evening.

Around 6:30 p.m., a tractor-trailer hit and broke a power pole in the Meadow Glade area, spurring an outage that impacted 2,341 customers, said Clark Public Utilities spokeswoman Erica Erland.

A few customers were out of power for longer than 10 minutes, she said.

According to the utility company’s online outage map, three customers were still without power Thursday night.
