BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Idaho Power officials say nearly 16,000 customers are without power in central Idaho due to multiple downed power lines.

The utility company says severe weather conditions caused the power outages in Valley County on Monday.

The power went out just hours after utility crews had finished restoring outages in Valley County that had occurred over the weekend and early Monday morning. Heavy snow and broken branches broke multiple power lines in McCall, Donnelly and Cascade areas for more than 10,000 customers.

Idaho Power had no immediate estimate when the power would be back on.

Meanwhile, transportation officials announced Monday that Highway 95 was closed between Council and New Meadows also because of the snow.
