The July 10th and 11th storms left over 180 thousand homes and businesses without electricity. Friday the utility had 99 1/2 percent of all power restored, and over the weekend, that one half of a percentage point of outages were corrected. The storm is termed an historical storm for the high number of outages.
Omaha crews along with many mutual aide crews from other power companies brought close to one thousand repair people to the area.
