Our next storm arrives Sunday... cloudier morning skies and scattered showers make way for more widespread rain by the afternoon... snow for the higher elevations and mountains. Sunday evening into Monday morning offers the best window for locally heavy rain and snow. The mountains will see significant snow. Rain and snow chances continue into Monday as the system exits Monday night... head over to the "Weather" tab for more information.
Thousands in southern Colorado were left in the dark Sunday night for several hours due to a massive power outage. All customers of the San Isabel Electric Company were hit by this outage.
Officials estimate that 20 to 23 thousand were without power for some portion of the evening.
In Pueblo West the power was off for about three hours and down south through Walsenburg and Trinidad people were without power even longer.
San Isabel says as of 9 o’clock Sunday night power had been restored to all of its customers.
They are calling it a system wide transmission failure. They say their power supplier, which is tri-state electric had a problem with one of their power lines. This was not a problem that San Isabel was able to fix.
