Friday morning storm damage Willmar, Minn.-area co-op's headquarters, some power outages


WILLMAR -- The power outages in Willmar from Friday morning's storm were limited, but the local cooperative had some customers without power and some structural damage at the headquarters as well.

The storm did not cause any major power disruption in Willmar because much of the city's power lines are underground. Municipal Utilities General Manager Wesley Hompe said only two customers near Lakeland Drive lost power.

"As far as we're going, we're OK,'' said Hompe.
