March 8, 2023 (Bowling Green, KY) 6:00 p.m. Warren RECC staff and crews continue to work alongside visiting crews to fully restore power to our members. As of 6:00 p.m., we have approximately 1,500 members still without power.
We have made great progress since the storm began Friday afternoon, restoring more than 95% of our members and replacing 70% of the 385 broken poles across our service territory. Please remember if you see a broken pole or a downed line, please stay away. An energized line looks exactly the same as a dead one, and we want all of our members to remain as safe as possible.
We continue to ask for patience as we restore the remaining areas. We are in 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.
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 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.
