Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - About 1,600 people woke up to no power Thursday morning in South Fargo.

The Xcel energy outage started just before 5:30 and lasted about two hours; hitting homes and businesses around the water treatment plant.

Xcel employees say they think there was an issue with cables running underground.

They say the cables are not lasting as long as expected, and believe our area's recent heavy rain, causing moisture in the ground, may have contributed to the outage.
