Momentary outages plague Minden

Staff Reports

A loose power line near Highway 88 and Centerville Lane caused momentary outages for about 1,300 NV Energy customers from Minden to Markleeville.

Both Douglas High School and East Fork Swimming Pool were affected by the outages, according to spokesman Karl Walquist.

Power company crews completed repairs at noon.

“The line is not down, but since it’s not as taut as it should be, anytime there’s a breeze and it bumps into another line,” Walquist said. “Then customers will see a momentary outage.”
