Power outages for over 700 in Marshall County

More than 700 households went without power in Marshall County Friday night. Ryan Stensland, spokesperson for Alliant Energy, said the communities affected were Gilman, Laurel and Ferguson, beginning at 8:10 p.m. He said a malfunction of a breaker at a substation off of the Sutherland Generating plant was the reason for the outages.

By 8:32 p.m. Friday, power in Laurel was restored to 304 customers with hopes power would be restored to 430 customers in Gilman and Ferguson later that night, Stensland said.
