Snowstorm leaves 102 000 Xcel customers without power in Denver, Colorado:

A total of 102 500 homes and businesses in Denver metro area were left without electricity on Sunday and Monday, October 8 and 9, 2017 after the first snowstorm of the season hit parts of Wyoming, Colorado, and Nebraska. This was Denver’s earliest first snow of the season since 2012.

Named Winter Storm Aiden by The Weather Channel, the storm caused travel problems across the three states and brought first accumulating snow of the season to Denver metro area where its heavy, wet snow caused power lines to snap, leaving widespread power outages from Boulder to Parker.

According to Xcel Energy Colorado, a total of 102 500 customers lost power because of the storm, about 56 000 for a sustained period (from at least 5 minutes to as long as several hours). The power was restored to 97% of customers by Tuesday morning, Xcel said, adding that the remaining 1 500 are expected to have power back by noon (local time).
