At the outage’s peak, about 250,000 Xcel Energy customers in Minnesota and western Wisconsin didn’t have power.

About 750 workers have been working as part of the effort to get power restored.

Meanwhile, the Star Tribune reports that cleanup continues after storms hammered the Brainerd area on July 12.
