A power line that fell across Highway 275 near the intersection of Victory Road on Thursday afternoon blocked traffic and left close to 1,000 customers without electricity for several hours.
The fallen line left 933 customers without power starting at about 2:30 p.m., said Mark Becker of Nebraska Public Power Department.
Most of those customers had their power restored by 6:20 p.m. The rest were back online by 10 p.m. Thursday night, Becker said.
The Norfolk Police Division blocked off traffic in the area almost immediately after the line went down.
The cause of the wire going down is not known at this time, but it is likely because of weather conditions.
The area left without power spanned from about South Seventh Street east to Channel Road and from Pasewalk Avenue to Northwestern Avenue, Becker said.
Nebraska Public Power District and emergency crews could be seen working in the area Thursday afternoon.
