Warren RECC restores more power Thursday morning
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - As of 10:30 a.m., Warren RECC staff have reported approximately 800 members are still without power.
Officials say that it has taken longer than unusual to restore power due to the large amount of outages and because of how many rural areas were impacted.
“That is part of what is difficult is we are a rural electric cooperative, which means our lines are out in the rural areas,” said Kim Phelps the Senior Director of Communications at Warren RECC. “Sometimes you can not even get in there with a truck. Sometimes you will have to take a bulldozer. It is just figuring out and getting it done.”
The power company has restored more than 95% of members’ power and replaced 80% of the nearly 400 broken poles across their service territory.
If you see a downed power line, report it to one of the outage lines: In Warren County call 270-843-9710. Outside Warren County, call 1-888-604-4321.
