Power restored in Black Hawk County

WASHBURN (KWWL) - The power is back on for more than 800 MidAmerican Energy customers in Black Hawk County.

The power came back on at about 8:30 pm Tuesday.  MidAmerican spokesperson Ann Thelen says a bad insulation on a power line caused the outage.  She called it a routine type of outage.

The power went out to more than 800 people just before 6:00 pm Tuesday.  About 450 of those who lost power were in Washburn.
