Frontier reports power outage

Frontier Communications is reporting a loss of power to a portion of Fort Dodge after a cable was cut.

Frontier General Manager Greg Hinz said the outage occurred on First Avenue North and is affecting customers on the west side of town, “including Village Inn, possibly the Sheker Addition and others.”

Crews are in the process of repairing the line and getting service restored, which Hinz said could take awhile.

“Due to the type of cable that was cut, restoration will be laborous,” he said. “We estimate it will be 24 to 36 hours for total restoral.”
