Beatrice, Nebraska – As of 1:30 p.m., Norris Public Power District has fewer than 1,200 customers without power and has restored power to 1,800 customers since outages began last night.  Customers lost power due to significant damage to poles and power lines as a result of severe thunderstorms that passed through the area.
