WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- With cleanup under way in Wichita from the devastating weekend weather, the United Way is seeking donations for long-term recovery efforts in Sedgwick County.

The agency reported having plenty of volunteers Tuesday to help homeowners clean up debris from Saturday night's tornado. But there's still a long way to go, and the agency says 100 percent of each gift to the United Way of the Plains Tornado Fund will go to recovery assistance.

Meanwhile, Westar Energy is continuing to restore power to customers who lost electricity Saturday night. The company says about 3,200 customers -- nearly all in Sedgwick County -- were still without power Tuesday afternoon, down from a multi-county high of more than 26,000 late Saturday.
