Major Power Outage

After icy weather created a power outage today, the lights are coming back on, slowly.

The outage affects about 2,000 customers of Mountain View Electric along Highway 24, from Black Forest to Limon.

A family in falcon celebrated a birthday party by candlelight and firelight, as guests waited for the lights to come on. Ice has caused several power lines to snap.

Mountain View Electric has crews working on the lines, starting in Black Forest and moving east.
