CRESCO, Iowa | RUSHFORD, Minnesota (KWWL) – MiEnergy Cooperative states that about 900 members in Minnesota still have no electricity due to the winter storm containing rain, sleet, ice, and snow. MiEnergy measures a total of 5,000 members were impacted.
Transmission line damage lead to many substation outages. The damage was due to ice build-up on power lines along with huge winds. The co-op reports 100 broken poles.
Co-op crews will try to bring the power back by 8 p.m. tonight.
MiEnergy Cooperative says that it will take weeks to finish the repairs and cleanup due to the storm.
