Grand Rapids, MN – Lake Country Power line crews have repaired 16 of the 21 total outages that affected nearly 1,400 members Wednesday afternoon. Nearly 100 members remain without power this evening within the Mountain Iron service area.
The outages were weather related due to high, sustained winds that blew trees and limbs onto power lines.
Wide-spread areas affected included St. Louis County, Itasca County, Aitkin County and a few other scattered locations between.
Lake Country Power’s line crews will continue working until all outages are restored.
