Severe Storm Causes Power Outages

May 26, 2011

Jackson Purchase Energy worked throughout the night to restore power to over 7,000 customers. Approximately 600 customers are still without power this morning. The majority of the reported outages are scattered throughout Ballard and McCracken counties. "The estimated time for power restoration is the end of the day," said Tracy Bensley, VP of Engineering and Operations. "It is also important to remember that a downed line is not necessarily a dead line and the public should stay clear of downed power lines and tree limbs that may be in contact with power lines.
