Still Without Power
By Angela Hatton
Murray, KY – Many rural homes in Western Kentucky are still without electricity after Sunday's wind storms. Jackson Purchase Rural Electric had just under a thousand people without power this morning and officials expect to be up and running by tonight. West Kentucky Rural Electric Member Services Spokesman Kevin English says around five thousand of the company's thirty-six thousand customers remain without electricity. "We have got all of our crews working around the clock. Plus we have crews coming in from other areas. We have some from South Kentucky Rural Electric Coop. And also down and around Cookville Tennessee we have some crews coming in. Also Murray Electric System has given us some help from their crews." English expects most of the system to be back online by Thursday, but says a few will remain without power through the weekend. WKRECC has customers in Graves, Carlisle, Marshall, and Calloway counties.
