WICHITA, Kansas (AP) – Crews are nearly done restoring power to customers affected by last week’s massive outage in Sedgwick County.

Westar Energy says around 500 customers in the county were still without power at mid-afternoon Monday.

That’s down from a peak of 21,000 in Wichita and the surrounding county after storms with winds topping 70 mph struck the area last Thursday.
