The entire town of Wellington was powerless for over 10 minutes on Jan. 17.

According to officials at the City of Wellington, the electrical power outage was due to a squirrel caught in the main sub-station.

"We have taken measures to attempt to prevent such animals in causing these outages, but cannot prevent this from occurring entirely," said City Manager, Gus Collins via e-mail.

Power was out for just over 13 minutes on Thursday.
