Power outage forces restaurants to close for the night

Posted: Updated:

The Olive Garden in Sioux Falls, along with more than 130 other businesses and homes were without power Saturday.

The power outage happened around 4:30 PM.

The area was the south side of 41st street, running from the Gold Rush down to the Olive Garden.

Some businesses like The Pizza Ranch, The Olive Garden and Subway closed.

We talked to some customers who were trying to grab a bite and say this outage is bad for business.

"With the power outage I'm sure that has to be frustrating because he's got a drive thru they use quite a bit," Adrian Vermeulen said.

According to Xcel Energy's website, the power won't be restored until after midnight.

We left a message with an Xcel spokesperson to see why the power went out.
