WEBER COUNTY, Utah — An early season snow storm knocked out power to some residents in Ogden, South Ogden and Riverdale Thursday morning.

Rocky Mountain Power Spokeswoman Margaret Oler said the power issues are especially bad because there are still so many leaves on the trees. The leaves add weight and hold more snow causing tree limbs to snap and fall onto power lines.

Crews were out working to repair the lines and remove tree limbs that are still tangled with lines.  

Most of the outages were in areas of Weber County as well as parts of the Salt Lake Valley, according to Oler.

“There is about 2,200 customers that are out [of power],” said Oler. “Crews are out there working and their goal is to get customers back on just as soon as possible.”

Rocky Mountain Power recommends customers have a kit available in the event of a power outage.
