June 26, 2023 (Bowling Green, KY) 2:45 pm Warren RECC staff and crews continue to work to fully restore power to our members. As of 2:45 p.m., we have approximately 12,900 members still without power.
Crews from other electric cooperatives and contract crews began arriving early this morning and more are scheduled to arrive this afternoon. We are expecting a total of 26 crews from Tennessee, Alabama, and Kentucky to help us restore power. The additional help will allow us to cover more ground quickly and efficiently. We are currently working around the clock to get power restored as soon as possible. However, restoration of this magnitude does take time, and we are estimating a multi-day restoration event.
Once again, we would like to remind everyone to avoid work areas. We want to keep everyone as safe as possible during our restoration efforts.
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.
