Along with wind and snow, some Moffat and Routt county residents are experiencing power outages, according to Yampa Valley Electric Association.

“With the severe weather conditions currently in our area, we are experiencing outages in our territory. YVEA is watching the storm closely and have crews dispatched for current outages and are ready for any outages that may occur throughout this storm,” YVEA spokesperson Tammi Strickland wrote in a news release sent a little before noon Wednesday, March 13.

“Please be cautious around YVEA crews, as well as all other crews working through this storm to restore power and keep our roads safe,” Strickland wrote.

Craig Press will continue to update this and other storm-related stories throughout the day.
