Power restored for most Iowans after ferocious winds

DES MOINES, IOWA (AP) Most power has been restored across Iowa after high winds caused more than 21,000 outages.

The state's two largest utilities, MidAmerican Energy and Alliant Energy, reported early Monday that only about 250 customers were still without power.

Most were MidAmerican Energy customers and the majority of the outages were in the Des Moines area.

The National Weather Service issued high wind warnings throughout most of the state on Sunday.

Peak gusts reached as high as 60 mph in some areas of central Iowa.
