STILWELL, OK -- It has been a week and a half since a devastating ice storm in northeast Oklahoma and around 270 Ozarks Electric customers are still in the dark.

Utility crews are still working to replace broken meter poles and energize a number of single and tap outages.

Ozarks Electric estimates many of those customers still in the dark have damaged meter loops and poles.

Officials say crews will continue to work around the clock to restore power to all members.

They are hoping almost everyone will be back on line by Sunday evening.
