Electrical workers, construction crews and National Guard members from eastern South Dakota and nearby states are helping to restore power at six electrical cooperatives in the western part of the state.
The state Rural Electric Association says more than 160 people from 20 South Dakota co-ops, a Minnesota cooperative, a Nebraska public power district, the Guard and several private contractors were on site or on the way.
The electrical providers getting the help include Black Hills, Butte, Grand, Lacreek, Moreau-Grand and West River.
West Central Electric Cooperative in Murdo also had outages from the weekend snowstorm.
