BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Food vendors at Edgewater Mall had a bit of a panic Monday in the middle of the lunch rush. A power outage to the mall's west side shut down business for less than an hour. 

Power was lost to the entire west side of the mall, from Charlotte Russe to JC Penny's. Mississippi Power crews were able to restore power within the hour. Mall Manager Terry Powell said they're still investigating what caused the outage. 

As if losing all that lunchtime business isn't bad enough, some of the food vendors expressed concerns about their deep freezers being offline for too long. One manager told us the freezers are good for 48 hours, so luckily the power hiccup won't have the long-term impact of lost food inventory.
