MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - Pacific Power has restored electricity to most of the southwest Oregon residents who lost it during a weekend snowstorm that included strong winds.

About 5,600 customers remained without electricity Monday afternoon, down from 25,000 at the peak of the outage. The utility says just about everyone should have their lights back by Tuesday.

The Red Cross opened shelters in Josephine and Douglas counties for those seeking warmth.

Meanwhile, Midstate Electric continues to restore power in parts of central and south-central Oregon. The utility’s outage map shows more than 2,000 customers remained without power in places such as Chemult, La Pine, Silver Lake and Gilchrist.
