FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - A snowstorm in Northern Arizona left a small community without power for three days.

The Arizona Daily Sun reports (https://bit.ly/2mmDd4A ) that Munds Park in rural Coconino County received 19 inches of snow on Monday. The storm toppled trees onto power lines, causing a lengthy power outage.

According to Arizona Public Service, 96 homes were still without power Thursday afternoon. The utility originally reported 3,000 homes were without power on Tuesday.

Pinewood Fire District Captain Josh Tope says that data might be skewed, as only about 25 percent of the 3,300 homes in Munds Park are currently occupied. He estimates about 1,000 people were affected by the outage.

Tope and Coconino County Emergency Management say there have been no serious incidents since the power went out.
