A few power surges around Valentine on Tuesday led the City of Valentine to a brief power outage around 2:30pm. Areas affected by the planned power outage was Bias and Green Streets west to the Catholic church, and several streets running north and south of 6th Street. The brief power outage was planned in an effort to fix the power surge issue affecting residents. The City of Valentine thanks you for your patience as they solved the problem.
