Thousands of SRP and APS customers were left without power after a massive monsoon storm pummeled the Valley Monday.

Lightning, pounding rain and a wall of dust have been staples of Monday night's storm, all contributing to serious power issues across portions of the greater Phoenix area.

Around 10:45 p.m. on Monday, SRP tweeted they were down to 300 customers without power.

Power was initially expected to be restored around 8:30 p.m., but now SRP officials are saying the outages will not be fixed until late Monday night, early Tuesday morning.

You can check the SRP power outage map to get updates on your area.

As of 5:15 a.m., APS is also reporting they have approximately 43 customers without power in Gila Bend.

At one point Monday night, as many as 20,000 people throughout the Valley were without power.
