Lightning Strike Blamed for Power Outage

Posted: Updated:

Stormy weather is to blame for some scattered power outages early Monday morning.

Xcel energy says 56 customers were without power for much of the morning. Everyone was back online by 11:30 am.

A Xcel Energy spokesman says the outage was blamed on a failed underground cable, which was likely caused by a lightning strike.
