OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Two major electric transmission lines damaged in last weekend's storms have been repaired, but more work remains to restore power to everyone in eastern Nebraska.

The Nebraska Public Power District said Wednesday that it had restored power to transmission lines between Sutton and Hastings and between Davey and Wahoo.

NPPD says it still has two other transmission lines to repair. The repairs to all four lines will cost roughly $17 million.

Those major transmission lines generally deliver power to smaller utilities that serve individual homes and businesses across the state.

In heavily damages areas, those smaller utilities are still working to repair all the damage from Sunday's tornadoes.
