Some power in Gering not restored until after 9 a.m.

Gering Electrical Superintendent Ron Doggett says power was restored to most locations in the city within a half hour after electricity was lost citywide around 7:45 Tuesday morning. Doggett says there were some locations, however, that crews had to go direct to the properties to restore power and some were not back on until well after 9 a.m.

Doggett says the power issue was caused by a switching issue and some rural areas served by Roosevelt and Chimney Rock Public Power were also impacted.
