Several roads are closed and several customers are still without power today due to damage from Sunday’s storm.

Crews from Tucson Electric Power are working to restore power to nearly 400 customers throughout the city, said TEP spokesman Joe Barrios.

The biggest outage is near Benson Highway and Alvernon Way with 65 customers without service, Barrios said.

At least 10 power poles were knocked down Sunday on Alvernon Way between Benson Highway and Valencia Road.

Alvernon is closed while crews work on the repairs.

The following roads are closed in Pima County:

• Overton Road at the Canada Del Oro Wash

• Silverbell Road at Benjamen Road

• San Joaquin Road between Calle Anasazi to Calle Cibeque
