BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota utilities continue working to

restore power to customers who lost electricity after last

weekend's snow storm that knocked down power lines.

The state Department of Homeland Security says about 3,600

utility customers remained without power Monday afternoon,

primarily in south central North Dakota.

Officials say at least eight different utilities reported

outages, but the Mor-Gran-Sou Electric Cooperative was the hardest

hit with more than 400 miles of power line down.

The National Weather Service forecast for Monday night calls for

1-to-3 inches of heavy, wet snow in the southwest corner of the

state. But the snow is not expected to hit the areas already

affected by outages.
