Power restored in eastern Neb following snowstorm

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Electricity has been restored to thousands of customers in eastern Nebraska who lost power when heavy, wet snow downed tree limbs onto power lines. 

Omaha Public Power District reported Monday morning that more than 4,800 customers remained without power in Douglas and Sarpy counties - down from the peak of about 56,000 in those two and adjacent counties Sunday evening.

Lincoln Electric System spokeswoman Rachel Barth said the system still had 99 customers needing power restored in Lincoln, down from Sunday's high of around 7,000 customers.

Totals varied widely from the snowstorm. The National Weather Service says 7.5 inches was reported 3 miles  southeast of Friend. Omaha's official total was 1.5 inches , but 3 inches or more was reported elsewhere in Douglas County. Four inches was reported 3 miles south of Lincoln.
