Winds Causing Isolated Outages
Saturday, March 24, 2018

9:15 a.m.

About 450 Fayette County members are without power this morning. Crews have been dispatched and are currently making repairs.

Strong winds are moving branches into power lines, resulting in momentary blinks, damage to fuses, and isolated outages throughout Fayette, Effingham and Shelby counties. Members are advised to be alert for fallen branches and to avoid downed and low-hanging power lines.
