There will be plenty of drama for the Oakland Athletics as they head down the home stretch in the pennant race. Probably not the kind of drama that unfolded Wednesday night against the Minnesota Twins, though.
A power outage Thursday morning affected about 12,500 customers across the Twin Cities metro area.
Xcel Energy has reported that 12,000 of those customers had power restored by 12:12 p.m., following the outage that started at 11:10 a.m. The outage affected areas in Blaine, Columbia Heights, Coon Rapids, Fridley, Mounds View, New Brighton and Spring Lake Park.
