Last Thursday, February 7th, at around 6:42pm, people in 5 counties lost power for nearly 3 hours. The weird part of it all is that it has not been
mentioned by any of the multimedia outlets in this area. I live in central South Dakota on the Missouri River in Buffalo County. There was no
mention of it while the local radio stations were broadcasting basketball games during any of their breaks...no mention of it on the Local News
channels, and finally no mention of it in our local newspapers. There has been no cause for the outage given out publicly and only rumors are flying
around. You would think that something like this might be quite newsworthy. Yet, nothing has been reported.
My question for anyone here is, would an event like this be worthy enough for anyone to not want to have made public other than those affected? I
could understand the electric company not wanting bad publicity, but to get all the Media outlets here to not say anything?
