Power Outage

Northwestern Energy experienced the loss of a transmission feed to two of their substations in Yankton resulting in a power outage that impacted the Meridian District and the southwest and south central areas of the community for about an hour Tuesday.

Area Manager Brad Wenande says workers are trying to determine the exact cause of the power outage.

Wenande says Northwestern Energy was able to re-route electricity to restore power in the impacted areas of town.

Wenande says the power outage was not connected to any of the construction currently underway in the Meridian District.
