A power outage left over 9,000 Concord residents in the dark for several hours Friday night and into Saturday morning. 

According to the city of Concord, the power outage started Friday evening and affected 9,400 residents who lived west of US 29. 

City officials said the power outage was due to an equipment failure on one of Duke Energy's delivery points to Concord. Duke Energy said there was damage done to their transmission equipment, but said they do not know what caused the damage. 

The power was restored around 5 a.m. Saturday morning, city officials said.
