(Salt Lake City-AP) -- About 14-hundred Utah Power customers are still without power this morning along the Wasatch Front.

Winds up to 70 miles per hour blew through Utah yesterday, knocking out power, causing fires, and causing damage throughout the state.

Utah Power spokeswoman Margaret Kessler says crews worked throughout the night to restore power to customers and they'll be out throughout today.

At the height of the storm, more than 30-thousand customers were without power in Utah and Idaho, most of them along the Wasatch Front. But Kessler says half of those were restored by 10 p-m last night.

Kessler says about 22-hundred Idaho customers remain without service this morning.

There's no estimate on how long it will take to restore power.
