Xcel Energy officials said Sunday there will be no compensation for those affected by Saturday’s massive power outage, which left thousands of Fargo-area customers without service for as many as 12 hours.
FARGO - About 5,660 Xcel Energy customers were without power for 12 hours by the time service was ultimately restored early this morning.
All customers affected by a widespread outage Saturday were back online by 1:45 a.m., according to a statement from Xcel.
UPDATED 10 p.m.
FARGO – About 5,660 Xcel Energy customers are still without power as of 10 p.m. Saturday as crews work into the night to restore service after a widespread outage paralyzed parts of Fargo and West Fargo today.
About 700 customers of Moorhead Public Service were without power for about an hour Wednesday after a squirrel came into contact with a power line, causing a breaker to trip in the Moorhead power plant.
Two apparent acts of vandalism that cut electricity to most residents in Wahpeton, N.D., and some in Breckenridge, Minn., early Wednesday could be considered acts of terrorism, said a spokeswoman for Otter Tail Power Co.
