(Updated at 2:45 p.m.) A power outage in the L’Enfant Plaza Metro station had commuters trying to navigate in the dark during rush hour today.

The station entrance at 9th and D streets SW was closed for about five hours because of the outage, but the station remained open. Portable lighting was set up on the lower-level Blue, Orange and Silver line platform.

Riders began sharing photos of the darkened station about 8:45 a.m.
