Approximately 970 customers remain without power on Friday morning. Crews will work in all remaining areas to finish up restoration for remaining residential customers today and tomorrow. Some smaller, unique outages that may include outdoor lights, hunting cabins/vacation homes and barns will be worked over the next several days.

Residential/Business Service Drop Information: Kentucky Power cannot connect power to any home or business where there is damage to the service entrance. The service entrance is the area located 1) at the meter, 2) between the meter and the home’s electrical panel, or 3) the location where Kentucky Power’s cable connects to the home/business owner’s cable. Customers need to have a qualified electrician repair this damage before power can be restored to the home or business.
