The ice storm has been causing major power loss problems for people across the state. Westar Energy has a message they want to get out to those affected.

Westar's trying to get the word out that they are working on the outages as quickly as they can. Thousands of poles are down with 6500 service lines out of power. 300 additional workers from other utilities have been added to speed up the efforts. They know people are frustrated, but they say there is a method to the madness.

Westar suggests that if you come across a down power line call 1-800-LIGHTKS or 911 immediately. Stay clear of the line because there still might be electricity running through it.
