More than 10,000 customers are without power after high winds of up to 102 mph ripped through Northern Utah Thursday.
Rocky Mountain Power officials say Friday that 300 crew members have been working to restore power. Outages centered in Davis and Weber Counties, with more than 50,000 customers losing electricity at the peak of the storm.
The American Red Cross opened several warming shelters to care for residents without heat and light. Authorities reminded people not to use generators indoors after South Davis Metro Fire Department reported a family was sickened by carbon monoxide overnight.
Officials declared a state of emergency in Davis County, where they say the storm damage tops $3.5 million. All schools in Davis School District are closed Friday.
A Red Cross Overnight Stay Shelter has been opened in Bountiful, at the same location housing the Bountiful Reception Center. The Layton Reception Center has now been closed, and those in need from the Layton area are being routed to the Ogden Overnight Stay Shelter. Both shelters will remain open as long as is needed.
The addresses are:
Mueller Park Junior High, 955 E. 1800 South in Bountiful.
