Crews still working to restore power

VOLGA, S.D. (WNAX) – Crews continue to make repairs and restore power to customers of Sioux Valley Energy.

Spokesperson Carrie Vugteveen (v-ugg-ta-vean) says more of their system has been brought back online.

She says there are still about 700 customers in the dark, down from over 10,000 at one time.

Vugteveen says it will take quite a while to get their system rebuilt.

Vugteveen says they had a lot of poles and other material on hand.

The damages were caused by last weeks blizzard and ice storm.
