Crews Making Repairs As High Winds Whip Limbs Into Lines
Saturday, January 19, 2019

4:55 p.m.

Southwestern crews are responding to scattered outages this evening as strong winds continue to move limbs into power lines. As of 4:45 p.m., about 200 members were without power. Damaged lines in two locations accounted for most of the outages. Crews have been dispatched to restore power to 115 members east of Ramsey and about 75 members near Old Ripley. Linemen are also working to restore service to members north of Mulberry Grove.

Members are cautioned to avoid all downed and low-hanging power lines. The lines may be energized, or become energized without warning.
