SALT LAKE CITY — For night number 3, thousands of people will go to bed without power hoping for it to be on again tomorrow.

Rocky Mountain Power has pledged they will work as hard as possible to get it back up and are bringing in crews from other states even to help fix it.

FOX13’s Sydney Glenn followed those crews around Thursday and to see that story click here: https://www.fox13now.com/news/local-news/out-of-state-linemen-travel-to-utah-to-help-restore-power

But for those that will be in the dark overnight again they were not happy.

“I am so pissed off” Susan Makov told us “supposedly they’ve contacted people via their computers… well guess what… you need electricity for the modem to work.”

While Rocky Mountain Power says they were hoping homes had their power restored by Thursday night, Makov says she got a call saying it could be as late as a few more days before she is back up.

“It's going to be a few days more… it's like are you kidding?” She told us.

It has also gotten too late to save any of her food as well, she had just finished throwing away all of her food in her refrigerator when our crews walked up.

“Half a trash can full of waste” she says.
