COOLIDGE - Power still hasn't been fully restored in Coolidge, where 2,300 Arizona Public Service customers were left in the dark when a thunderstorm packing winds of 60 mph knocked down 11 power poles Wednesday night.
APS said after the power poles are replaced, it would start to reroute electricity to its customers.
Classes for some 5,000 students in the Coolidge Unified School District were canceled for a second day.
The Red Cross has been operating an emergency shelter at Coolidge High School to help residents cope with near 110-degree weather, and APS also has been distributing bags of ice.
Emergency generators are supplying power to the high school.
The Coolidge area was under a heat advisory Friday.
