March 7, 2023 (Bowling Green, KY) 9:30 a.m. Warren RECC staff and crews continue to work alongside visiting crews to fully restore power to our members. As of 9:30 a.m., we have approximately 5,300 members still without power.
We have made great progress since Friday afternoon, restoring more than 85% of our members. We continue to ask for patience as we restore the remaining areas. We are entering the stage of restoration where pole replacements, removing trees from power lines, and putting up lines allows us to turn the power on to just a few houses at a time. However, work is being completed as quickly as possible. Please remember to avoid work areas as much as possible. For the safety of our members and employees, please give us a call If you have a tree or limb down on a power line or very near a line so we can clear it for you.
At this time, our goal is to complete the vast majority of the restoration by the end of the week. In the most severely damaged areas, some restoration efforts may last through the weekend. We are working around the clock to get power restored as soon as possible.
We will continue to provide updates as information becomes available. Please remember to stay away from downed power lines. If you see a downed power line, please report it to one of our outage lines: In Warren County call 270-843-9710. Outside Warren County, call 1-888-604-4321.
