SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The power is back on in Davis County. More than 28-thousand customers were in the dark this morning after a bird flew into a substation. The problem has been corrected.
The outage was NOT related to last night's wind storm. But Utah Power and Light reports that just less than 400 customers are still without power because of the storm.
Crews are replacing wire this morning in the downtown Salt Lake City area, where about 300 customers are without power.
Another 165 customers in the south part of the Salt Lake Valley also don't have power back yet. Crews there are replacing a power pole to get them back up and running.
At its peak, about 18-thousand customers from the Salt Lake Valley to southern Idaho were without power because of downed power lines.
Utah Power hopes to have all power restored by early afternoon.
