(WHNT) – It’s been a frustrating few days for people in rural areas who lost power Wednesday night. It’s not been easy on the crews working to restore it, either.
You’ve heard about the situation with Joe Wheeler Electric in Morgan and Lawrence counties. There, 1,200 people were still without power on Friday morning.
Meanwhile, we’ve heard from people in rural areas of Marshall, DeKalb and Jackson counties who want to know the latest on their situation. They say they haven’t been able to get an answer from their utility providers.
WHNT News 19 worked to get answers Friday morning. We checked with the following providers for updates:
Northeast Alabama Electric Cooperative: Crews hope to have all outages repaired by 12 p.m. Friday. They didn’t have a specific number of customers that were still out, but said they have extra crews from other areas who have come to help. They are aiming for lunchtime to have all outages fixed.
Marshall/DeKalb Electric: Crews say they have less than 10 customers without power. They hope to have those fixed by mid-morning Friday.
Are you still out of power? If you have a different provider, send an email to email@example.com with the name of the provider and your area and we’ll try to get an answer for you.
