Spring snowfall in Colorado leaves 210,000 homes without power | USA

DENVER (AP) — A spring storm in Colorado left several inches of snow in the Denver area Saturday and some 210,000 customers without power, officials said.

Wet snow beat tree branches, which fell onto power lines, KUSA television reported. Much more snow fell in the mountainous region of Colorado.

As of Saturday night, some 160,000 customers had their power restored, but another 50,000 were still without power, Xcel Energy Colorado said in a statement.

The small community of Cripple Creek near the base of Pike’s Peak received about 20 inches (51 centimeters) of snow, KUSA reported.
