Xcel Energy has restored power to the City of Post after thousands were without power through the night. The updated estimated restoration was said to be 9:15 a.m. but as of 7:30 a.m. there are no outages reported in the KCBD viewing area.

As of 7:00 a.m. Friday more than 2,100 customers were listed as without power since 11:30 p.m. on Thursday night. 

According to representatives with Xcel energy a transmission problem caused this power loss.

The Garza County Sheriff's Office worked through the night and early morning hours, with residents, to make sure businesses remained secure, the elderly still had oxygen machines and other crucial supplies working, and that traffic intersections were manned.
