Strong winds and brief rain hit Craig in the late afternoon and early evening Thursday, causing electrical power outrages in multiple parts of town, including Ranney Street and Victory Way, part of isolated showers and thunderstorms throughout Northwest Colorado.

Hazards such as fallen tree branches on power lines contributed to the issue, with crews from Yampa Valley Electric Association responding quickly.
