Rolling Hills Electric Cooperative is reporting that it should complete the effort to restore power to the residents of Republic, Washington and Cloud Counties shortly.
Rolling Hills Manager Doug Johnson said, “It’s a very slow process, we have put a lot of poles in the ground and we are moving through a lot of mud.”
It has been a week since a snowstorm blanketed a good portion of the northern part of the state with as much as 8-inches of heavy, wet snow. At its peak, Rolling Hills reported as many as 600 rural customers were without electricity.
The Mankato based electric cooperative serves about 10,000 meters in 16 North Central Kansas counties.
