(Salt Lake City-AP) -- The work of power restoration is going backward this afternoon for Utah Power.
The utility had the number of people along the Wasatch Front without power down to about 750 earlier today. But that number went up to about 11-hundred during the three o'clock hour with additional outages.
A spokesman for the utility says crews will work at restoring power until dark. That's when they will make an assessment to see if that will continue through the night.
Winds up to 70 miles per hour blew through Utah yesterday, knocking out power, causing fires, and causing damage throughout the state.
At the height of the storm, more than 30-thousand customers were without power in Utah and Idaho.
