COLUMBIA — A power outage in east Columbia has caused some traffic signals in the city to stop working, Columbia police said. 

A city Nixle alert indicated that traffic signals east of Broadway and Old 63 were affected.

"Treat all dark intersections as a four-way stop and drive with caution," the release stated.

Neither the police nor the City of Columbia could confirm what caused the power outage, how long it would last or how much of Columbia is affected.
