Farm Accident Causes Power Outage In Northeast Nebraska

Posted: 30 September, 2013

WAYNE (KTCH/KCTY) – According to officials with the Northeast Nebraska Public Power District, a farm accident caused an outage in the Wayne area Sunday morning. NNPPD Manager Mark Shults said that shortly after 9:00 am, a boom on a corn chopper made contact with a 69,000 volt power line. This knocked out power in the cities of Wayne and Wakefield, along with substations in Dixon, Thurston and Dakota Counties. The city of Winside was also affected. Shults said NNPPD workers had most areas up and running about an hour and 15 minutes later.
