3 brief power outages on Mankato hilltop

MANKATO — Construction was responsible for three brief power outages in Mankato’s hilltop area Wednesday morning.

About 550 customers briefly lost power at 10:24, 10:34 and 10:54, said Patti Nystuen, an Xcel Energy spokeswoman. It wasn’t immediately clear what specifically caused the outage, but Nystuen said construction was interfering with power lines.

These brief outages last from a few seconds to a few minutes.
