Posted: Updated:

According to Northwestern Energy, 485 customers are still without power along the Hi-Line after last week's snowstorm.

Crews were able to restore power to around 250 customers on Saturday and have been working steadily since the storm hit on October 2.

On October 3, about 9,000 customers on the Hi-Line were out of power and about 350 power poles were down or badly damaged in the area, mostly between Harlem and Malta.

Some areas in and around Rocky Boy's Reservation received more than 30 inches of snow with drifts as high as six feet or more.

Areas in and around Havre, Rudyard, and Chester received more than a foot of snow.
