Dutch stork causes power failure
A stork building her nest in an electricity substation has caused a power failure in the south of the province of Drenthe and the north of the province of Overijssel.
A spokesperson for regional grid operator TenneT said on Monday that about 60,000 homes were left without power for a brief period.
The stork reportedly fell on one of the transformers in the substation, causing it to short out. The nest caught fire; the stork sustained burns but survived the accident.
