UNDATED -- About 400 people are still without power in Kanabec, Pine, Morrison, Isanti, Milacs, Chisago and Benton Counties.

East Central Energy says crews are working to restore the power but due to the severe weather conditions it has slowed down the process.

East Central Energy says they plan on having power restored by late Friday or early Saturday.
