A power outage puts WDIO and other stations off the air for over two hours Saturday.

It happened around 5:30 p.m. and was fixed by 7:18 p.m.

Minnesota Power spokesperson Amy Rutledge says that a failed regulator which controls voltage was to blame for the outage.

Crews are still working to get everything back to normal. Programming should be airing normally.

Eyewitness News at 6 was unable to air because of the complications with the outage, but Eyewitness News at 10 will air as scheduled.
