Thousands of people in Ada, Elmore and Canyon counties lost power during a Sunday evening windstorm.
Just as power was being restored in parts of Boise, another outage occurred in Mountain Home, where just over 3,000 people were still without power temporarily, according to Idaho Power’s outage map.
By Monday evening, service had been restored to most customers.
Initially, about 2,600 people lost power near East Amity Road and South Federal Way.

Another 1,045 users were without power near North Cartwright Road, above Hulls Gulch.
Multiple small outages were peppered throughout Eagle, Emmett, Nampa and rural areas.
An Idaho Power spokesperson said most of the outages are caused by falling tree limbs or trees that were uprooted by the wind hit power poles or power lines.
The National Weather Service reported gusts of wind of 45 mph in Boise between 5:13 and close to 7 p.m., about what was expected. There was lightning farther west and east near Glenns Ferry to the Magic Valley, said Dave Groenert, an NWS meteorologist in Boise.
Monday’s high temperature is expected to reach about 78 degrees, 10 degrees cooler than on Sunday, he said.
