    Sawgrass Mills Mall in Sunrise will reopen Friday after a power outage caused an evacuation Thursday afternoon.

    The mall will be open for normal business hours at 10 a.m. after Florida Power and Light restored power, mall spokeswoman Lauren Fyke said.

    Police on Thursday said it wasn't clear what caused the outage, but shoppers and employees said they saw the lights flicker before the fire alarms went out.

    "We were just in the store and the lights went off. We had to evacuate, get all the money safe," said store employee Daynason Eugene.
