Third round of storms in six days leaves over 1,000 customers without power

A lot of people across Lincoln lost electricity overnight

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — For the third time in six days, severe weather smacked southeast Nebraska.

It all began late Thursday night and kept going throughout the early morning hours.

Flashes of lightning were so fast and frequent that it was difficult for drivers to even concentrate on the road.

Some people who were able to stay safely inside lost power across Lancaster, Seward and York Counties.

LES was reporting more than 800 outages at one point overnight.

By Friday evening, power had been restored to all customers.

More than 300 customers had no electricity in Seward and York Counties as well.

Crews will once again be racing to get everyone’s power back up and running, with the heat index reaching triple digits Friday.
