UPDATE: Power Restored to Majority of Mandan Residents

By  | 

Power was out for a couple of hours in a large section of Mandan Monday afternoon.

An MDU spokesperson says a contractor was digging in a neighborhood and struck a main power line. The outage affected around 1,200 people.

MDU has been switching the power supply to another substation in order to restore electricity. Just over 200 people are left without power.
