ABERDEEN, S.D. (HubCityRadio.com) – A snake dropped by a bird was the culprit in a power outage on the north side of Aberdeen earlier this afternoon.
Power was out for about an hour after a city substation was damaged, according to Tom Glanzer, Community Relations Manager with Northwestern Energy.
He said it was a snake that shorted the system.
Glanzer said more than 3,000 customers were impacted.
