According to the Hibbing Public Utilities website, the power outage caused power to be lost in the plant, which also caused the steam line to go down. Power was restored in the plant around 7:00 Sunday night.

Crews are currently working on repressurizing the steam line, and restoring power to parts of the city still in the dark. 

The cause of the outage is not yet known. 

Hibbing Public Utilities says they appreciate the public's patience during the outage.
