Power Restored for Most Storm Victims

LACROSSE, WI (Ben Caxton) — Most of the tens of thousands of people who lost electricity during a severe snow storm in the Upper Midwest have their power back on. The second “bomb cyclone” storm in less than a month knocked out power to more than 100,000 people in Minnesota, South Dakota, Iowa and here in Wisconsin. PowerOutage.us reports that only about 3,600 are still waiting to have their electricity restored. Xcel Energy had 100,000 customers without power during the storm. The utility reports that fewer than 1,000 are still without electricity, and they should be back online soon. Xcel says snow, rain, ice, and strong winds snapped more than 650 power poles and downed hundreds of power lines in the region.
