Hundreds Lose Power In Yankton

Nearly one thousand households and businesses on the east side of Yankton lost power for a time this (Friday) morning.

Northwestern Energy Spokesman Thomas Glanzer says due to the high winds, a tree branch fell off into a power line causing the outage.

Glanzer says 964 power customers were without power from 10:26 to 10:57 AM. Of those 964 customers, 418 had power out until 11:12 Friday morning.

Glanzer says all power to all customers from the outage has been officially restored.

The power outage caused some computer issues and glitches at many businesses, including the Yankton Medical Clinic.
