1,000+ Lose Power Due to Weekend Storm

Posted on November 20th, 2017

A dangerous mixture of thunderstorms and strong winds moved through our area Saturday, disconnecting the power to a number of homes.

According to Leslie Beard, Director of Marketing and Member Services at WIN Energy REMC, as of 4:30 p.m. Saturday, just over 1,000 WIN Energy customers were left in the dark. The largest portion of those residents live in Knox county, with 838 homes being effected.

WIN Energy crews had the number of outages greatly reduced by 10:00 p.m. Saturday, and were able to fully restore power to all homes by 5:15 Sunday morning.
