Wet and muddy conditions led to more customers being without power Monday night than SaskPower initially expected, as repairs continue following Saturday's storm.

But the Crown corporation was able to make up ground on Tuesday, restoring power to over 1,150 residential and farm customers.

A Tuesday-night update said they expected 300 customers to remain without power overnight. SaskPower expects their power to be restored by Wednesday evening.

"SaskPower would like to offer its sincere gratitude and thanks to the countless farmers and producers who have assisted in the restoration effort in the southeast, helping tow power line equipment through muddy fields."

The utility said repairs would have taken far longer without the help from producers.

SaskPower had 216 technicians working in the southeast on Tuesday. They've had over 3,100 crossarms, 600 power poles, and 300 metres of power line dispatched to the southeast.

There could be further outages related to the damage from the storm.

"In the coming days, customers in the southeast could experience short planned outages while SaskPower crews complete permanent repairs to the grid," said the release.
