Monday afternoon, September 7th, winds caused scattered outages around MW&L’s system. About 5:45 pm the outages started in the Second St. and Wallace Rd. areas where limbs caused a feeder from Walnut City substation to open. A Windishar substation feeder also opened affecting North Hwy 99W toward St. Joseph Rd. Several other outages kept the crews busy into the night including Booth Bend, North Hill Rd, and Willis Rd areas. Power was restored to all customers by about 3:00 am.

If you are experiencing a power outage or if you notice tree limbs hanging on power lines, please contact us.
