Hundreds of homes without power in Brown and Spink Counties

BROWN COUNTY, S.D. - According to Northern Electric Cooperative, there are 353 members without power in Brown and Spink counties. There are 119 members without power in Brown County and 234 in Spink County.

Crews have been working all day on Thursday to try and restore power but the snow and strong winds are making that difficult.

The cooperative said there will be several members without power through the night. They don't believe crews will be able to restore power to everyone by nightfall on Thursday.

The reason why is because many roads are impassable because of the strong winds and deep snow. Homeowners are being asked to make appropriate preparations to spend the night without electricity.
