NV Energy continues to restore power to customers

CREATED Jul. 20, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- At the height of the storm, 33,000 NV Energy customers were without electricity.

The outages were mostly on the east side of the Valley.

As of 6 p.m. on Saturday, NV Energy said around 1,500 customers were still without power.

Also, Sahara was shutdown between Maryland and Burnham Avenue, after two power poles broke in half.

Road crews said the road is back open, but there are still power outages around Sahara and Eastern that are delaying travel around there.

The storm also caused trouble for travelers at McCarran International Airport.

Almost every flight around 9 p.m. was delayed. Some because of rain, others because of the lightning, making it too dangerous to refuel planes.

Most of the delays lasted about an hour.

Action News spoke with McCarran on Saturday morning, and the situation was all cleared up with flights arriving and departing as scheduled.
