Power Still Out On Friday For Some

KSAL StaffJune 6, 2014

Westar Energy says some residents around Salina and Topeka who lost power after storms moved through early Thursday might have to spend another day without electricity.

The utility said in a news release that the storms knocked down 24 power poles in Salina, and it could be about 7 p.m. Friday before power is restored to about 2,000 customers. About 1,200 customers might be in the same situation until Friday evening in Topeka, where high winds blew down numerous power lines.

Westar says the storms knocked out power to more than 12,000 customers, and power was restored to about 75 percent of those residents on Thursday.

Westar has asked utilities in Iowa, Missouri and Oklahoma for assistance.
