MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Power has been restored to thousands of residents in south Minneapolis who lost service over the weekend.

With temperatures below zero degrees, crews are racing to restore service to those who are still in the dark.

The Xcel Energy website says about 770 customers were without power Monday as of 6:30 a.m.

About 4,600 people in the south Minneapolis area lost power Sunday about 8 p.m.

Most of them had service restored within three hours, but about 1,400 were still without power about midnight.
