We have received several reports of power outages in Great Falls.
One of the outages affected the Tuesday night meeting of the Great Falls City Commission.
NorthWestern Energy says that the outages were caused by a power line that caught fire between 5:30 and 6 p.m. after a tree fell on it.
In the process of repairing the outage, another outage occurred in the area of 2nd Street to 8th Avenue North and River Drive to 12th Street.
Energy company officials tell us that all power should be restored by around 9:00 p.m, and that about 2,100 customers have been affected.
KRTV viewers have reported power out at the following locations:
- 3rd Avenue North and 13th Street
- 11th Street and 4th Avenue North
- 2nd Avenue North between 10th Street and 11th Street
- 12th Street and and 7th Avenue North
No word yet on the cause of the outages; we will update you if we find out.
