Midwest Energy crews quickly restored power just after 7:30 a.m.

Mike Morley, Corporate Communications Manager at Midwest Energy told Hays Post that an unlucky bird in one of the substations caused this morning’s power outage that affected approximately 100 customers.

“Of all the things that contribute to power outages, animals cause from 10-30% of them depending on the weather and time of year,” said Morley.
