Minnesota Power reaches out to customers with storm tips

With line crews and equipment positioned and ready to respond, Minnesota Power is prepared for heavy, wet snow and high winds predicted for Thursday and Friday in northern Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Such strong early spring storms can cause power outages, and travel during this storm is expected to be hazardous and difficult. An early forecast from the National Weather Service allowed timely preparations to ensure power will be restored as quickly and safely as possible if outages occur.
A potential danger in this storm will be high winds and heavy snow causing trees and limbs to fall on power lines. Customers are urged to stay away from any such trees that appear to threaten power lines to their homes, and instead contact Minnesota Power at (800) 228-4966—or download and use one of our new mobile apps—to report any problems.
