Grand Rapids, MN – Lake Country Power line crews are currently working to restore power outages throughout its service areas. Crews repaired at least 50 outages during the day yesterday.
Nearly 4000 Lake Country Power members were without power during the day yesterday. The outages are weather related due to the high, sustained winds that are blowing trees and limbs onto power lines. In some locations, lines have been knocked to the ground. The outages are widespread throughout the cooperative’s service area- primarily in the Mountain Iron and Grand Rapids service areas. Outages were also reported in the Kettle River service area.
LCP is working with several emergency 911 crews at various sites as grass fires are being reported as well.
