Western Nebraska Observer - Observations all along the line - Kimball & the Southern Panhandle First

No reason known for Tuesday power outage


Kimball experienced a city-wide power outage with unknown cause Tuesday morning for approximately 45 minutes. The Kimball Electric Department had power back on shortly after 9 a.m.

City Administrator Daniel Ortiz said that when a city-wide outage is experienced, crews must check the entire distribution system.

Ortiz added that generally the issue is something apparent, such as a downed line or insulator. This time however they found no obvious cause in their search.

“We suspect it was a bird or a squirrel somewhere,” Ortiz said.
