Sheridan County Experiencing Significant Power Outages
UPDATE: According to MDU, crews found the cause to be a large snake that shorted out the system at the transmission substation. Power should be restored shortly.
Residents and businesses throughout Sheridan, Dayton, and Ranchester are currently without power. MDU estimates it will take three to four hours to investigate and repair the issue.
All of historic downtown is affected, including traffic lights. The Sheridan Police Department is aware of the situation and reminds everyone that non-functioning traffic lights should be treated as four-way stops.
