DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) — Electrical worries persist in tornado-ravaged Dickinson.

One of the city's main electrical transmission lines was damaged in last week's storm, and workers are scrambling to have it fixed by the end of the week.

Thirty-two poles need to be replaced. Roughrider Electric line superintendent Simon Kuntz says the line is a main source of power for the city.

Mayor Dennis Johnson says that if another severe storm hits before the line is repaired, the city could lose power.
