Hundreds in ND Still Without Power After Weekend Storm

Hundreds of people in southwestern North Dakota remain without power in the wake of a weekend snowstorm that dumped up to 1 ½ feet of snow. 

Don Franklund with Mor-Gran-Sou Electric Cooperative and Slope Electric says it could be a week before power is restored to all customers. And he says replacing 700 downed power lines could take even longer. 

Franklund says crews are coming in from Wyoming and South Dakota to help out, but finding lodging for them is difficult because of the housing shortage in the western North Dakota oil patch.

Montana Dakota Utilities spokesman Tony Spilde says all of the snow has created terrible conditions for workers, and Franklund says flooding will be a concern when it all melts.
