HENDERSON, NV (FOX5) -

Power was fully restored to hundreds in Henderson on Tuesday after strong winds knocked out power for more than 24-hours. 

NV Energy reported the outage impacting more than 1,000 customers just after 2 a.m. in the area near U.S. 95 and College Drive. Power initially expected to be restored by 8:30 a.m., according to the NV Energy website. However, a company spokesperson said it will not be fully restored until 11 a.m. Tuesday. 

Five power poles were damaged during high winds near Horizon Drive and College Drive. Three crews were working around the clock to repair overheard cables and underground equipment. 

As of 12:45 p.m. Monday, 460 customers remained without power. Those customers will likely not have power until Tuesday morning. 

A spokesperson said power was fully restored at 4:45 a.m. Tuesday. 

NV Energy warned anyone in the area to keep their distance from crews working on the power lines for their own safety.
