A massive effort is underway to restore electricity in northeastern New Mexico after storm winds knocked down power poles across parts of at least two counties.

The Springer Electric Co-op reports more than 150 poles are down from Raton to Capulin, Springer to Gladstone and south to Mosquero.

About 900 customers are without electric service, and some may wait days for it to be restored.

KRQE News 13 will have more on this developing story on afternoon and evening newscasts.
