Power outage map from Appalachian Power.

Power went out to 2,173 Floyd customers of Appalachian Power at 5:37 a.m. Thursday morning, leaving people without electricity in an area that ran from Indian Valley towards Alum Ridge and Eastward past Rte. 8 and over to Pilot.

The Appalachian Power web site said a vehicle accident knocked the power out. Company officials say the problem started with the accident but a substation problem complicated restoring the power.  A spokesman a little after 8 a.m. EDT  said  he hoped power would be restrored later n the morning but would not say exactly when.  The web site at 11:39 a.m. Thursday reported fewer than five outages left.

Watching and will update as the situation changes.
