Twin Falls woman speaks out after recent power outage

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) Some residents in the Magic Valley finally got their power restored a little bit after 5 p.m. following Saturday's severe weather.

A spokesperson from Idaho Power said crews are working tirelessly to restore all of the power in the Magic Valley.

Initially, Idaho Power said they would fix the outages around 10 p.m. Saturday night but later pushed it to midnight. They then gave a restoration time between 1 to 2 p.m. Sunday.

Those without power spent most of the day cold and in the dark -- with some getting their electricity back more than 24 hours after the storm.

A Twin Falls resident says the power outage affected her greatly, mainly because of her health.

"I have to be on a nebulizer for my breathing treatments, for I have severe asthma," Liz Tracy said. "I can't even open my refrigerator for fear that my life-saving medications will go bad and spoiled."
