Xcel Energy crews are working to restore power in the wake of the Sioux Falls area ice storm.

Joe Anderson of Xcel Energy tells KSOO Radio:  “So far we’ve had 60,900 customers impacted by this week’s storm.  32,140 have been restored.  Currently, there are 19,914 customers affected.  I think we are up to 127 crews working on Thursday.

Anderson says it’s possible power can be fully restored to the vast majority of customers by 11 P.M.  Thursday evening.  “Beyond that, there will be the individual service lines that we expect to take a little bit longer.”

If you’re out of power and have contacted Xcel Energy, Anderson encourages you to file another report.  “It may be wise for customers to call back and report the outage again”

To report an outage, or to receive outage information or restoration estimates, customers are asked to call Xcel Energy’s outage line: 1 800-895-1999.
