Storm knocks out power to thousands across the Northland
DULUTH, MN. (Northern News Now) - Strong winds, snow and ice were taking down trees and branches across the Northland Thursday afternoon.
As of 3:30 p.m., nearly 6,000 Minnesota Power customers were in the dark. Reports indicate strong winds were toppling trees onto powerlines in many locations. Almost all of the outages were in and around Duluth.
In a press release, Minnesota Power said, “All available crews from across our service area are out in full force working to restore power and additional crews from our northern and western divisions have been called in to assist. High winds can hamper their response because it makes elevated work more dangerous.”
