The recent storms have left thousands without power in Minnesota.

Around 4:00 Saturday, Xcel energy sent out an email to costumers. The email said over the last 36 hours, 505,000 power outages to Xcel customers occurred in Minnesota as a result of severe weather.

The company says electricity has been restored to more than two-thirds of affected customers. However, approximately 150,000 customers remain without service.

Crews are working around the clock to get the power back on.
