BOZEMAN, Mont. -

Folks at Northwestern Energy say snow is likely to blame for several outages throughout the region.

They tell us they suspect a line is down in McAllister, north of Ennis, and residents may be without power.

Northwestern Energy representatives say a power outage has also been reported in the Twin Bridges/ Sheridan area.

They say they've seen problems in Anaconda- smaller outages they say they fix but more arise as the day wear on.

Folks with Northwestern Energy say there were also several small outages in Three Forks, Melville and Livingston earlier Thursday, but power has been restored.
