Henry County Power Outage

Paris, TN – Less than 500 homes remain without power today after storms whipped through Henry County, Tennessee last night. Paris Public Utilities General Manager John Etheridge says at the outage's height last night 2,000 of the company's 20,000 customers were without power. Etheridge says strong winds knocked out several utility poles. Crews worked through the night, and Etheridge says they expect to have almost everyone back on the grid by the end of the day.
