Extremely high winds have knocked out power for residents in Conifer and Woodland Park.

According to the Intermountain Rural Electric Association, several power outages in those areas were reported early Monday afternoon. In a statement on Facebook, the organization said: “Our crews are working as quickly as possible to restore service.” But it gave no estimated time as to when power would return. 

High winds contributed to several other power outages around the state Monday and have negatively impacted efforts to fight several wildfires. Parts of Park, Jefferson, Clear Creek and several other counties remain under a red-flag warning from the National Weather Service until 9 p.m. tonight with gusts up to 45 mph hour expected.
