DENVER (AP) -- It could be midday before electricity is restored to everyone who lost power in the Denver area after powerful winds.

Xcel Energy said Thursday morning only a few hundred customers are still without electricity.

Xcel Energy said the blackouts affected about 50,000 customers in Denver, Fort Collins and Greeley starting at 10 p.m. Tuesday.

The National Weather Service said gusts of up to 60 mph were reported in the Denver area and the northeast Colorado plains Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

Gusts of 46 mph were reported in the northern Colorado town of Loveland on Wednesday. Fort Morgan, Akron and Holyoke in northeastern Colorado reported 40 mph gusts.
