As quad-city residents woke up Friday morning, many found their homes cold and dark.

More than 10,000 Arizona Public Service (APS) customers in the area were without power due to a number of storm-related outages.

Areas most impacted were northern and southern Prescott, central Chino Valley and along Williamson Valley Road.

Suzanne Trevino with APS said the utility company had five linemen crews working the Quad-Cities throughout the day, as well as forestry crews to assist in tree removal.

“They are encountering multiple poles down, trees down and wires down,” Trevino said Friday morning.

Crews worked to first isolate the outages to limit the number of people impacted and then do the repairs.

Power restoration took longer than usual due to the difficult weather conditions, Trevino said.

To assist those impacted by such outages, as well as those who simply didn’t have somewhere warm to be during the remainder of the storm, the American Red Cross had a shelter/warming center set up at Bradshaw Mountain High School, 6000 Long Look Drive in Prescott Valley throughout the day.
