UPDATE 6:56 PM: All customers appear to be back online.
172 MidAmerican customers in Coal Valley are without power after a dump truck hit a utility pole.
A representative from MidAmerican Energy says the truck hit a pole on East 5th Street between 18th and 19th Avenues just after 10:00 am Saturday. The pole and several power lines went down, causing nearly 400 customers to lose power.
The rep says crews have been working on the outage all day, but the last 172 customers won’t get power back on until they can set a new pole and re-hook the downed lines. Right now, there’s no word on how soon the repair will be made.
