Friday night power outage hits Craig, Maybell, Wyoming
The city of Craig and surrounding areas experienced a blackout Friday when electrical power first cut out shortly before 10 p.m.
Yampa Valley Electric Association estimated the restoration of power could take up to three hours in a Facebook post made at about 10:30 p.m. for customers in Craig, Maybell and Wyoming towns Baggs and Savery.
“This large outage, affecting more than 4,900 members, appears to be transmission-related to Xcel Energy, our wholesale power provider,” the post read.
Power was restored for Craig customers shortly after midnight.
Craig Press will have more on this story as it develops.
