Significant progress has been made in restoring power to people who were left in the dark after Tuesday’s ice storm.
Mark Giltner of Pennyrile Electric says the number of members without power in Christian County is down to 567, including 182 on Dawson Springs Road. An outage on Old Fruit Hill and Wade Road has 45 members without power and 36 members on Bainbridge Road are out.
Todd County has the most members without power at 601. Pennyrile says 236 of those members are in the Dunmore-Deerlick Road area and 121 are in the Allegre vicinity.
There are 144 members in Trigg County still in the dark and the number in Logan County is down to nine.
All Hopkinsville Electric System customers who had lost power are back on and Kentucky Utilities isn’t reporting any Christian County outages.
Christian County Emergency Management Director Randy Graham says roads continue to be slick and hazardous, especially in the north end of the county and on bridges and overpasses.
The National Weather Service says parts of Christian County got a half inch of ice Tuesday after temperatures never got above the freezing mark as was forecast. There are more chances of snow this weekend, but those weather systems are not expected to cause major problems at this time.
