Lighting Strike Causes G.I. Power Outages


A lightning strike to a nearby power pole left some Grand Island businesses along Highway 281 in the dark Wednesday.

It happened shortly after 7:00 p.m.

The Conestoga Mall and a few surrounding businesses were dark for about 15 minutes until city crews fixed the damaged fuse holder.

G.I. electric officials said that's the only call they’ve had so far.

The mall did not close, but some stores did pull down the gates until the outage was over.
