Lightning Knocks Out Power

Three direct lighting strikes are responsible for knocking the power out to 750 Columbia-area PG and E customers early Sunday morning.

Emily Barnett with PG and E says three transformers in the Yankee Hill area were hit Sunday by lighting during the storm that passed over the area late Saturday night. The power outage put radio stations KKBN FM, KZSQ FM, and AM 1450 KVML off the air as well. Barnett says power was restored to all by Sunday mid-morning.
