“We had a power outage yesterday,” Kayla, a manager at the store said. “We lost dairy products and meat products.”

“We are restocking the shelves, ” she said.

The power outage was confined to the Walmart Store, 2500 S. Main,  said Gina Penzig, Westar Media Communication Manager.

“It lasted about six hours,” she said. “It was most likely caused by a lightning strike.”
