Winter storm Ulner created much havoc across Nebraska, including the North Central Public Power (NCPPD) service area. The storm unleashed rains causing historic levels of flooding. NCPPD had some poles wash out and some hit by debris resulting in outages. Because of the rising water, many roads were closed, limiting access to these downed structures. NCPPD crews continued to work in these extreme conditions to restore power. Parts of the Village of Santee and some rural areas were without power for two days. NCPPD, with the help of Nebraska Public Power District (NPPD), installed a 1600 kVA generator on Friday restoring power to the rest of the Village of Santee.
