A downed power line knocked out power to thousands of homes Monday afternoon on Bolivar Peninsula.

What caused the power line to fall was not immediately known. A spokeswoman for Entergy, the power company that services the peninsula, said the line failure could have been weather-related.

More than 2,800 power customers were without power at 3:30 p.m., according to the company’s website. The company estimated that power would be restored by 6 p.m. Monday.

Temperatures on the peninsula were below 40 degrees all day.
