Power has been restored to Yosemite National Park after a nearly week-long storm-related outage.

     Park officials say the power returned on Saturday. It went out on Sunday, March 20 after a powerful winter storm dropped several feet of snow in the area.
    
The park was closed for three days, as power lines fell and trees blocked roads. Park buildings were forced to rely on emergency generators.
    
All roads into the park have since been cleared and reopened. All park services are also fully operational with the exception of the Yosemite Valley campgrounds.
    
Those are expected to reopen to the public on Monday.
