Storm causes power outages

MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) – A power spring storm system raking the Midwest has left thousands without power in northern Iowa and damaged some homes and businesses. The Mason City Globe Gazette reports that nearly 19,000 Alliant Energy customers were without power by midday Thursday in the area, including the communities in and around Brit, Garner, Forest City, Mason City and Northwood. Heavy rain, hail and high winds gusting to 60 mph pummeled the area Wednesday night into Thursday.
