LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla., July 14 (UPI) -- A power outage forced the evacuation of 120 passengers on the Disney World monorail Sunday in Florida, officials said.

The Epcot line lost power during a thunderstorm, causing some passengers to believe a lighting strike may have been to blame.

Fire officials confirmed the power loss was due to weather.

Reedy Creek fire officials said some passengers were evacuated through an emergency hatch on the roof, while others left through the train doors. No one was injured.
