Sioux Falls, S.D. – May 13, 2022 – NorthWestern Energy crews continue to work around the clock to repair damage caused by extreme weather Thursday evening in eastern South Dakota.

Crews are replacing broken power poles, repairing downed power lines and other damage.

Stay away from all downed and damaged power lines and report them to NorthWestern Energy at 800-245-6977. Look up and look out when cleaning up after this storm for power lines when using ladders and other equipment.
