SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Almost 5,000 people lost power for nearly three hours overnight after a power line fell in Sioux Falls.

Steve Kolbeck, principal manager of Xcel Energy-South Dakota, tells the Argus Leader that the wire was down from about 11:30 p.m. Friday until about 2:10 a.m. Saturday as crews performed repairs.

Kolbeck says the outage affected about 4,800 people. Eric Pauli, community relations manager with Xcel Energy, says it’s unclear what made the wire fall.
