Nearly 9,000 customers still have no power after last weekend's blizzard downed power lines and damaged equipment in western South Dakota.
Black Hills Power says about 4,500 of its customers remain without electricity. The company has restored power to more than 23,000 since the storm.
Mike Theis of Black Hills Power says some of the company's customers in hard-to-reach areas will not have their service restored until sometime next week.
The South Dakota Rural Electric Association says latest reports indicate that rural electric cooperatives in western South Dakota still have about 4,200 customers without service.
More than 190 workers from electric cooperatives in nearby states, private contractors and the South Dakota National Guard are helping the seven western South Dakota co-ops.
