About 10,000 customers of Kansas City Power & Light Co. who lost power in Friday’s storm remained powerless as of 9 p.m. Saturday.
Jackson County customers accounted for about 8,200 of those still waiting for electricity.
Workers from five other utility companies helped KCP&L crews restore power Friday.
At the peak, about 110,000 of the utility’s Kansas City-area customers reported outages.
Some of the smallest outage areas might not be restored until Monday, the utility said.
The utilities tackle the largest outages first. The biggest swaths occurred in the Mission Hills and Westwood areas on the Kansas side of the line and in the midtown, Northeast and eastern areas of Kansas City.
About 1,300 workers from KCP&L, Ameren, Westar, MidAmerican, Omaha Public Power District and Empire District utility companies were on the job. The utilities were dealing with the largest number of power outages in the area since the 2002 ice storm.
In Wyandotte County, the Board of Public Utilities reported about 3 p.m. that 7,800 customers remained without service. Crews from Joplin and Springfield, Mo., were helping.
“Our goal is to get almost all customers back up with power by tomorrow (Sunday) morning,” the utility’s website said.
