Heat proved to be a detriment to the activities last night at the NEMO Fair.

Consumers air conditioning demands combined with the electric load at the fair resulted in a power outage for Tri-County Electric customers as the area lost electricity just prior to last night’s concert activities, affecting an area from the fairgrounds to the new Sperry substation northeast of Kirksville. The power outage resulted in a late start for the concert activities, however Tri-County Electric General Manager Dave Ramsey says Tri-County Electric plans to have a crew standing by in the event they are needed tonight.
