March 9, 2023 (Bowling Green, KY) 5:00 p.m. Warren RECC staff and crews continue to work alongside visiting crews to fully restore power to our members. As of 5:00 p.m., we have approximately 300 members still without power.
We have made great progress since the storm began Friday afternoon, restoring approximately 99% of our members and replacing 92% of the 402 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.
Over the next few days, you may begin seeing our crews in areas that have power. Our first priority is always to restore power to each and every member. As we are able to restore power to the remaining members this week, we will begin fixing items that were not instrumental in restoring power but needed for long-term operation of the electric system.
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.
