Less than 100 customers without power locally

Following last Friday’s windstorm, the work to restore electricity to the homes in Russell County continues today, while the number of South Kentucky RECC customers affected is now under 100 locally.

With local lineman crew numbers limited, officials with South Kentucky RECC have credited the help of the crews from out of state cooperatives who have assisted in the power restoration process.

At its highest point, nearly half of South Kentucky’s RECC customers were without power last week, including over 5,000 customers in Russell County.
