Storm downs power lines in Oliver County

Although students going to Center-Stanton School may have welcomed a day off Jan. 25, the storm that prompted administrators to close classes that day also caused a great deal of hassle for other Oliver County residents.

According to Oliver County Director of Emergency Services Lisa Reichenberg, approximately 200 rural electric customers lost service and about 70 electric line poles went down in Oliver County. She said problems began Jan. 21.
