Power restoration effort continues

Oklahoman Published: March 7, 2013

Northwest Oklahoma continues to feel the effects of last week's severe winter storm as crews continue to work on restoring electrical service.

The Enid News & Eagle reports that some rural and farm customers still have no power.

The newspaper reports that crews from three Northwest Oklahoma electric cooperatives are involved in the effort now in the wake of last week's blizzard which downed poles and lines supplying power to thousands.

During the height of the restoration effort, crews from power co-ops throughout the state and elsewhere were involved in the effort.
