BRIEF: Early morning outage in Grand Forks impacts 1,900 customers
Apr 15, 2012 (Menafn - Grand Forks Herald - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --A power outage affected about 1,900 customers in a north-central area of Grand Forks on Saturday morning, according to Mark Nisbet, a manager with Xcel Energy.
The outage, which began just after 7:30 a.m., lasted about two-and-a-half hours.
Power was back on for everyone by 10:09 a.m., he said. About 450 customers had power restored about earlier.
The outage was caused by a wire that came down, Nisbet said. "We're not sure why. The winds we had a day or so earlier may have loosened a connector, but that's speculation."
It was not caused by a break in an underground connection, he said.
