The City of Minden fared Saturday's storms with some power outages, flash flooding and a broken water main, but things were reportedly back to normal before the day was over.

Minden Mayor Tommy Davis said most of the reported power outages were on the north side of the city.

"We know a tree fell on the lines on Lewisville Road, and that took out a number of residences in the Country Club Circle, Woodhaven and Braeburn Glen area," Davis said. "I believe we had power restored to those people in about two hours."

Other areas suffered brief outages due to high winds and limbs on lines, including Pennsylvania Avenue.

While low-lying areas of the town and streets saw a good bit of flooding, the Industrial Drive area saw more, thanks to a leak in a 12-inch water main Saturday afternoon.

"We had some businesses and residences out of water for a while there," the mayor said. "I went out there for a while when city crews were working on it. They managed to get it fixed pretty quickly."

No more rain is expected for several days with mostly sunny skies and cooler temperatures with highs in the lower to mid-50s and lows around the freezing mark, according to the National Weather Service.
