WRECC released the following update at 9:43AM on Monday, March 6th:
Warren RECC staff and crews continue to work alongside visiting crews to fully restore power to our members. As of 9:30 a.m., we have approximately 8,700 members still without power.
At this time, our goal is to complete the vast majority of the restoration by the end of the week. In the most severely damaged areas, some restoration efforts may last through the weekend. We have restored transmission outages and the largest distribution outages. We now move to restoring single lines, roads, neighborhoods, and individual houses. This restoration work will be slower, and we ask for your patience. Be assured we are working around the clock to get power restored as soon as possible. We have continued to receive additional crews throughout the weekend. We currently have over 50 additional crews aiding us in our effort.
Once again, we would like to remind everyone to avoid work areas and downed power lines. We want to keep everyone as safe as possible during our restoration efforts.
We will continue to provide updates as information becomes available. Please remember to stay away from downed power lines. If you see a downed power line, please report it to one of our outage lines: In Warren County call 270-843-9710. Outside Warren County, call 1-888-604-4321.
