MLGW Restoration Process Nears Completion
January 30, 2010
(January 30, 2010) MLGW crews are beginning to wind down the restoration process this evening in the wake of yesterday's winter storm that brought ice, sleet and snow to Shelby County. As of 8:30 p.m., about 700 customers remained without power.

MLGW crews will continue to work throughout the evening to restore power to these customers. In addition, crews will be available tomorrow should any additional outages occur.

Dozens of MLGW crews have worked around the clock since yesterday to restore power to those affected by the winter weather. Downed power lines and poles, as well as limbs and trees, caused approximately 30,000 customers to lose power at various times since the storm hit Friday morning.

MLGW encourages any customers still without power to call the automated outage hotline at 544-6500. Those with emergencies should call 528-4465.
