Wintery Mix Causing Some Power Issues

Written by Theresa Rose on February 12, 2019

819 Wayland area residents are without power this morning.  The area is served by Alliant Energy.  The company website indicates the power will be restored at about 9 am.  Apparently the power went out at about 5 am this morning.

Mt. Pleasant Utilities is reporting scattered outages on the system largely caused by tree and ice issues.  The line crew has been working most of the night restoring individual problems.  Areas impacted have included the northern section of the community.  Mt. Pleasant School supt John Henriksen said Harlan School was without power early this morning.  Several people also witnessed a bit of a light show last night about 10 pm when it appeared a transformer on Iowa Avenue blew.  Utilities manager Jack Hedgecock encourages the public to contact the utilities if they have any issues and also use extreme caution when encountering any downed power lines.
