About 27,800 customers have been restored since the conception of Storm Atlas.
On Monday, about 200 customers remain without power. The majority will be restored by mid-week. Of the 200 customers, BHP service crews continue to complete service and reconnects in neighborhoods throughout remaining week. Restoration in the following key communities include: Rapid City, Sturgis, Belle Fourche, Spearfish and Keystone. BHP is also preparing for anticipated severe weather conditions that may cause challenges.
Customers without power may be waiting for customer-hired electrician to repair the service mast prior to service reconnect by BHP. Customers being informed of potential need to hire a licensed electrician to repair their meter can and/or overhead service mast prior to power being restored. Those customers are being notified of their restoration date.
