Power restored in Park Rapids following morning outage
A switch gear that shorted out near U.S. Highway 71 caused a 2½ hour power outage for much of Park Rapids Friday morning.
Minnesota Power spokes person Amy Rutlage said power went off around 9:20 a.m., affecting the whole town.
Power was briefly restored shortly after 10 a.m. but the gear tripped again 15 minutes later.
