Tuesday storm knocked out power

Nearly the entire city of Windom went dark Tuesday as a thunderstorm rolled through the area.

Windom Electric Superintendent Jason Sykora said that either lightning or wind from the storm disrupted a transmission line between Mt. Lake and Windom, causing most of Windom to go dark shortly after 10 p.m.

Sykora said that generation was started in order to restore traffic lights on the highway, and power was restored to the entire city shortly afterward, after a 51-minute outage.
