Progress made in southwest for SaskPower customers

SaskPower said they were able to make solid gains last night, but 653 customers in the Southwest remain without power.
Service was restored to the Nekaneet First Nation and four Hutterite colonies south of Maple Creek. ETR for the majority of the remaining customers is expected to be 10 p.m. tonight.

SaskPower said more resources will be brought in today to the area around the Eagle Valley Campground, with eight crews working on four miles of downed power lines and dozens of broken power poles.
A storm with high winds and snow blasted the region earlier this week.
