COLUMBUS, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska farmers should watch out for power lines when harvesting their crops this fall.

The Nebraska Public Power District is reminding farmers to keep an eye out for power lines when they bring combines and other large equipment out to the fields.

NPPD's Art Weise says it can be easy for farm workers to get their equipment stuck in a power line if they aren't paying attention to their surroundings.

Last spring, a well drilling rig caused a small power outage when it became tangled in an overhead power line.
