ST. PAUL, MN – Governor Mark Dayton Friday signed Emergency Executive Order 18-06 to provide assistance and emergency relief services to stranded motorists. Heavy snow and strong winds have downed power lines in Rock County, and continued storm conditions are expected to create dangerous conditions for people travelling through the area.
WORTHINGTON - Early morning storms led to 60 to 70 poles down on the transmission line along I-90 at the Magnolia Exit. Nobles Cooperative Electric and Sioux Valley Energy are working to "back-feed" power to as many members as possible. Unfortunately, the towns of Ellsworth and Magnolia will be out of power until the line is rebuilt. Crews are working as quickly and safely as possible, and help from additional crews has been requested.
Extremely high winds and rain have caused an outage for NCE members in the City of Ellsworth. Initial reports indicate numerous broken poles on the transmission line from I-90 going north and south of the Magnolia exit. The outage began this morning at 7:40 a.m. Linemen have been dispatched to help with the outage.
WORTHINGTON - Charges have now been filed against a second Rock-Nobles Corrections probation officer in Nobles County District Court, and additional charges have been filed on probation officer Rebecca Barraza.
