SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Some South Dakota residents who lost power in a Christmas Day snowstorm are still waiting for their service to be restored.

KELO-TV (https://bit.ly/2hQINXG ) reports the work to restore power back in towns across northern South Dakota is taking longer than expected. The Montana-Dakota Utilities says it may take until Saturday before all service is repaired.

Nearly 80 power poles between Hoven, Tolstoy and Onaka were knocked down, leaving hundreds without power for a few more days. Extra crews have been sent to the region.

About 900 people in Eureka, Hillsview and Hosmer had power restored Wednesday.
