June 28, 2023 (Bowling Green, KY) 10:00 a.m. Warren RECC staff and crews continue to work alongside visiting crews to fully restore power to our members. As of 10:00 a.m., we have restored power to 25,000 members and have 4,000 members still without power.
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. Additional crews arrived this morning to help us complete the vast majority of the restoration by this evening. In the most severely damaged areas, some restoration efforts may continue into Thursday.
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 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.
