Wednesday, June 10, 2020:  Power went out at Gilbert Lodge at 3:53 pm. 
Homes, businesses and street lights, at that end of town, were out too.

Police were out directing traffic.

The Brainerd Public Utilities website showed probably one-third of their service area was out.

Trucks arrived to apparently find a shorted underground cable, not far from Lake Country Dental.
It took about 0.8 hours to restore power that day.

The next day at 12:05 pm, there was a city-wide power outage that lasted about 0.6 hours.
It apparently occurred because of a problem at the major power sub-station SE of town.

The fully-automatic backup power generator plant at Gilbert Lodge functioned perfectly both days. 
It provided power for the duration after only a 10 seconds.

Quote of the day:    It is amazing how people depend on electrical power.  Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
