PHOENIX — At its peak, some 35,000 customers were without power late Saturday after storms brought dust, high winds, thunder, and lightning to much of the Valley.
As of Sunday evening, power had seemingly been restored to most of those customers, with fewer than 2,000 still without power, according to both APS' and SRP's online outage maps.
SRP's Outage Map still showed some customers without power in San Tan Valley, Queen Creek, Chandler Heights, and South Phoenix due to downed power lines.
One of the hardest-hit areas for APS customers was near 35th Avenue between Cactus Road and Peoria Avenue, where multiple power poles were knocked down affecting hundreds of businesses and homes. APS says its field personnel are working to restore the outage caused by downed power poles.
Crews are working quickly and safely 24/7 to restore power to those experiencing outages caused by major storms last night. Thank you for your patience. Get updates and sign up for alerts at https://t.co/NUIPc0Y4Qb. pic.twitter.com/INJTYpWCUD— APS (@apsFYI) July 11, 2021
