MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - Thousands of residents in Missoula were still without electricity Wednesday after a Monday night windstorm caused a power outage.

The Missoulian reports (https://bit.ly/1Mq9aQn ) that power is expected to be restored to a majority of residents by the end of Thursday.

Power was restored to some parts of the Linda Vista neighborhood Tuesday. But others in the area were still without power as crews from NorthWestern Energy worked to raise new transmission towers.

The Monday storm initially left about 18,000 residents without power. A NorthWestern Energy spokesman says the company restored power to more than 2,000 customers on Wednesday, still leaving about 3,000 residents without electricity.

The Linda Vista and Miller Creek neighborhoods remained the largest outage area as of Wednesday.
