Hundreds continue to face outages after snowstorm

Fewer than 700 Xcel Energy customers in metro Denver were still without power Monday morning after the weekend’s end-of-season snowstorm.

On Sunday evening, nearly 2,000 customers were still struggling with outages.

Xcel officials had said on Twitter around noon Sunday that they expected most if not all power to be restored by the end of the day.

“We anticipate power will be restored by the end of the day for all customers affected by the spring snowstorm, as long as there is no damage to their home or business that would prevent them from accepting service,” the company said in a tweet.

About 210,000 customers suffered outages when the snow hit Friday night through Saturday morning, while 70,000 still had no power Saturday night.

By 10 a.m. Sunday, about 25,000 Denver subway customers were still without power. That number had been reduced to around 2,000 by 10 p.m. Sunday.

The heavy, wet snow knocked down branches and damaged rows of trees across Denver, but hit the western and southern suburbs particularly hard.
