3,299 customers without power in Floyd County at 5:30 p.m.

103012linemenAccording to APCO, at least 3,299 customers in Floyd are still powerless.

That’s down a little from the 4,500 at noon (almost half the customer base of 9,170 customers in the county).

Too many people in the dark. Our power clicked off briefly three times this morning but came back on each time in under 20 seconds.

We’re lucky.

Too many others in the county were not.

Hopefully, the power will be restored to the rest of the county soon.
