Power Outages Hit Area
Power Outages Hit Area

Two power outages hit our listening area Monday morning.  About 5,000 people in Mitchell were without power for just over an hour.  The outage was widespread, including Main Street, Mitchell Senior High School, L.B. Williams Elementary School, the intersection of Havens and Burr, the Dakota Wesleyan area, and the intersection of Havens and Ohlman.

Sanborn County Sheriff Tom Fridley says a downed power line just outside of Forestburg caused a power outage north of Mitchell.  Over 750 Xcel Energy customers were affected in several communities including Artesian, Forestburg, Canova, Madison, Howard, Carthage, and Salem.
