DODGE CITY, Kan. (AP) — Several thousand people in the Dodge City area are still without power after an ice storm coated the region during the weekend.

The Victory Electric Cooperative out of Dodge City reported at least 5,000 homes were without power by Monday afternoon and it could take several days to restore all power. The conditions caused most schools around Dodge City and Dodge City Community College to call off classes for Tuesday.

Victory officials said in a news release the utility is bringing in more crews to help restore services.

Victory serves customers in Ford and Gray counties and parts of seven other counties.

A shelter was opened Monday at the Dodge City Community College.

Other utilities and electric cooperatives reported scattered outages Monday in western and south-central and central Kansas.
