Power out in and around Minnesota cities of Comstock, Sabin and Wolverton
A power outage this morning is affecting parts of southern Clay County, including city and rural residents in the Comstock, Sabin and Wolverton, Minn., county Emergency Manager Matt Siiro said.
Xcel Energy indicated it could take three to four hours to restore electricity, Siiro said. The outage was reported before 7 a.m.
The county has prepared to open a shelter in Sabin if necessary, he said.
"Our issue is that houses cool off pretty quickly in this cold weather," he said.
The power outage is patchy, Siiro said, adding half of Sabin has power and half of the city is without.
