MANTORVILLE, Minn. – A state of emergency is declared in Dodge County after a devastating storm leaves thousands without power.

The Dodge County Sheriff’s Office says the storm left over 4,340 homes without electricity at peak but as of 6 pm, power has been restored to almost 900 homes.  That still leaves 3.472 homes without power for Thursday night and it could be 24 to 72 hours before power is back on for everyone in Dodge County.

Multiple township and county roads have been closed and blocked with barricades due to downe power poles and lines.  Closed until at least Friday morning are:

- County Road 16 - Between CR11 and 252 Ave

- County Road 4 - at intersection of 230th Ave

- County Road 13 - Between CR 6 West and East

The Sheriff's Office says law enforcement, state and county plows, and local tow companies worked all day long helping stranded motorists stuck both in the roadways and ditches.
