Power outages occur in Marshall County

More than 700 households were without power in Marshall County Friday night as a result of a breaker malfunction at a substation off of the Sutherland Generating plant.

Ryan Stensland, spokesperson for Alliant Energy, said the communities of Laurel, Gilman and Ferguson were affected beginning at 8:10 p.m. He said power in Laurel was restored at 8:32 p.m. and there are hopes to restore power to Gilman and Ferguson sometime tonight.

“We’re hoping it’s nothing too serious,” Stensland said.
