Crews still working on restoring power


In the wake of this latest snow storm, people are still without power in KELOLAND.

KELOLAND’s Whitney Fowkes went out with an energy company Sunday to Hartford to see the work happening to turn your lights back on.

Line men are removing damaged poles and replacing them with new ones, but there are other hazards that they haven’t been able to fix yet.

“We are finding some wires that have not been reported that are live and on the ground, so I always want to say to people if you see wires don’t go near them don’t touch them. If they’re in the road don’t drive over them,” Sioux Valley Energy CEO Tim McCarthy said.

If you see any damaged poles or wires on the ground in east-central South Dakota or southwestern Minnesota call Sioux Valley Energy.
