Xcel Energy: Power outages in Dunn Co.

70 customers are still without power after a car hit a pole around 1:30 Thursday (Dec 9) morning.

Liz Wolfe Green with Xcel Energy says the customers, who live in Menomonie, probably won't get their power restored until sometime Thursday afternoon. She says crews are working on replacing the pole. The crash knocked out power to nearly 2,000 customers, but the majority of them had it back by eight Thursday morning.
