(CNN) -- About 3,000 customers in the Salt Lake City metro area remained without power early Monday morning after severe storms swept through the northern part of Utah, officials said.

Utility crews worked through the night to repair downed power lines, said Rocky Mountain Power spokesman David Eskelsen.

In Farmington, another 1,300 were also without power.

At the height of the storm Sunday evening, the wind gusted at more than 75 mph and left 12,000 customers without electricity, the Salt Lake Tribune newspaper reported.

The storm forced Salt Lake City International Airport to reroute 10 flights and damaged a hangar, the newspaper said.
