A tree branch came down on the electric wires in Jamaica Plain causing a 90-minute outage for around 1,200 NSTAR customers this afternoon.

The outage lasted from around 1:10 to 2:40 p.m. The tree branch that caused it fell near Bromley Street in Jamaica Plain.

"Everything should be back to normal," a NSTAR spokesman said.

Any area customers who are still without power should call the electric provider, at (800)592-2000, the spokesman said.
