For Lake Country Power personnel, 2016 could easily be remembered as the year of the storms.

Line crews were dispatched at full strength (including crews from 10 other cooperatives/companies) to help restore power to thousands following a massive storm that hit July 21.

“Lots of our employees said they never saw a storm that bad,” said Tami Zaun, public relations coordinator.

It took line crews 10 days following that storm to restore power to the last customer. At the peak of the outage, more than 26,000 customers had lost electricity.  The utility serves 43,000 members in portions of eight counties in northeastern Minnesota.

Unfortunately, Mother Nature wasn’t finished.
