Kansas City Power & Light said that as many as 300 customers remain without power Monday following the intense storms that roared through the Kansas City area Friday.
“They are almost all single outages and they are in difficult places to reach,” said Rebecca Galati, a spokeswoman for KCP&L. The company anticipates that it will have power restored to all if its customers Monday.
All of the outages have been assigned crews and about 900 people headed into the field at 8 a.m. Monday morning to work the outages. Once the power is restored, crews will spend the rest of the week making permanent repairs to KCP&L’s system, Galati said.
The strong storms the lashed the area with winds gusting up to 80 mph Friday caused some of Kansas City’s worst tree and power line damage since the 2002 ice storm. At the height of the outages, about 110,000 customers were without power, KCP&L reported.
