BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Mor-Gran-Sou Electric Cooperative says

about 160 linemen from across North Dakota and from other states

were brought in to restore power throughout south central North

Dakota on Monday.

The co-op estimates that more than 2,000 of its customers remain

without electricity after last Friday's snow storm that toppled

power lines and poles.

Spokesman Don Franklund says some people might remain in the

dark for weeks, but the co-op hopes to get a lot of people back

online in the next four or five days.

Capital Electric Cooperative says it hopes to restore power to

all of its customers by the end of the week. That co-op had several

hundred people without power after the storm.

Verendrye Electric Co-op in north central North Dakota had about

300 locations without power, but most had electricity restored over

the weekend.
