Some northeast Iowa residents woke up in the dark this morning. About 40 customers of Grundy County Rural Electric Cooperative were without electricity for about two hours. Kevin is operations manager for the R-E-C. He says a bird landing on a utility line created a short, which shut down a switch in a substation near Hudson. The outage happened around 5:30 Tuesday morning, and affected parts of Grundy and Black Hawk counties.
