SCOTT CITY, Kan. (KWCH) Midwest Energy shared some pretty incredible video Monday morning.

The company provides power to thousands of customers in northwest Kansas.

Crews battled the blizzard-like conditions to restore that power.

As of 2 p.m., the company said it has restored power to about 80-percent of its customers and was down to about 540 customers without power.

The company said clearing roads was helping crews catch up on smaller outages.

The main transformer in the town of Victoria had to be replaced but Midwest Energy said for the most part, the damage was very light.
