ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - The city of Albuquerque has open three facilities as cooling centers for people whose power has not been restored since a major outage Monday night.
A fourth center has closed after no one appeared needing the service. The others will remain open until later in the evening.
At last report about 1,100 customers remained without electric service as temperatures in metro Albuquerque hovered around 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

"PNM has informed the city they estimate the power to be restored by late afternoon," a statement from the mayor's office says. "If necessary the community centers and senior centers will accommodate any changes to that timing and extend their hours of operation.
"The Mayor's Office has also contacted the Red Cross to ask for their support. The Department of Senior Affairs is doing welfare calls and checks for all homebound seniors."
