Xcel Energy says that power should be on for a majority of Sioux Falls and Southwest Minnesota by late Friday evening.
Crews have restored power to over 76,000 customers with about 14,000 still in the dark.
If the spring storm damaged the pipe-like housing that connects service wires to a home's meter, the customer must contact an electrician for repairs before service can be reconnected.
A workforce of more than 420 is helping to restore power to Xcel Energy customers.
