Rural Clay towns without power Tuesday night

MOORHEAD – Several small communities to the east of here were without power on Tuesday night.

Glyndon, Downer, Barnesville, Sabin and surrounding rural areas were experiencing some power outages around 9 p.m., according to the Red River Valley Cooperative Power Association.

In an automated message playing on their 1-800 telephone number used to report power outages, the co-op said it doesn’t know what is causing the outage or when power will be fully restored, but crews had been dispatched at around 9 p.m.

It was unclear exactly how many homes were affected by the outage. The affected communities are all within about 20 miles of Moorhead.
