The utility co-op in Nobles County hopes to finish restoring power to its customers by Friday.

But Nobles Cooperative Electric says even that goal depends on favorable weather this week. The co-op said 2,000 customers were still without power Sunday following last week's ice storm.

2,000 is also the number of power lines estimated to be downed. The county is seeking volunteers to help with the cleanup.

Worthington does have power again, and the co-op expected that 90 percent of Murray County would be back on Sunday.

U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar spoke with Fox 9 after touring the region over the weekend.

Gov. Mark Dayton, Sen. Al Franken, and U.S. Rep. Tim Walz were also part of Saturday's visit.
