OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Severe storms have led to power outages throughout Nebraska.
The Omaha World-Herald reports at least 188,000 Omaha Public Power District customers lost power overnight, and 100,000 still were without power Saturday morning.
A utility spokeswoman says outages could last days.
The utility recorded hurricane-force wind gusts of more than 90 mph. A downed transmission line off Interstate 80 near Aurora also slowed traffic to a crawl.
Another downed transmission line fell across Union Pacific tracks and is stalling train traffic.
