Power Outages Haulted, More Possibly Coming


Power has been restored for MidAmerican users tonight.

At one point more than 6,000 people were without power in the area but with the colder temperatures and high winds, a MidAmerican representative said the company has a plan to stay on top of power outages.

"We analyze where our crews are throughout the service territory," Tim Grabinski said. "We identify that we can bring extra crews in from out of state even. We anticipate doing that for this occasion."

MidAmerican also plans to have trucks on standby throughout the area and ready in case of a power outage on Thursday.
