Black Hills Energy is reporting what it says are brief intermittent power outages in the Cheyenne area due to powerful winds that are blasting southeast Wyoming.

The Cheyenne Office of the National Weather Service was forecasting winds that could reach 75-80 miles per hour in the Cheyenne area through this evening. They are expected to taper off somewhat on Sunday.

Black Hills Energy spokesperson Laurie Farkas, in a Saturday evening news release, said that crews are monitoring the system and are working to make any needed repairs as soon as possible.
