Minnesota Power Expects Full Power Restoration Tonight
On day seven, customers might see the light
Minnesota Power is expecting power to be resorted by the end of the day to all remaining customers who have been without electricity since last week’s severe storms.
Crews have been focusing on the time-consuming process of restoring individual service wires in the Woodland and Morley Heights neighborhoods of Duluth and the outside of the City of Rice Lake.
Although full restoration is expected by the end of the day, customers requiring repairs to their service mast on their home cannot be reconnected and will still have no power. Those customers must hire an electrician to complete repairs before service can be restored.
Customers are encouraged to call Minnesota Power at 1-800-30-POWER (307-6937) if their power remains out.
