Kenergy crews have been working since early Thursday morning to repair downed lines and restore power to western Kentucky residents in their service area.
Kenergy Spokesperson Leslie Barr told 44News that as of 1:00 a.m. Thursday morning, around 2,600 Kenergy customers were without power, but that the number of outages has been vastly reduced since then, with the majority of the current outages located in Daviess County.
As of about 1:00 p.m. CT, Kenergy's Outage Viewer was reporting 938 current outages in Daviess County, with smaller numbers of outages in Henderson, Hancock, and Ohio counties.
Due to the trouble caused by wintry conditions throughout Wednesday and Thursday, Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear issued a State of Emergency on Thursday and said that over 70,000 Kentuckians statewide were without power as of about 9:00 a.m. CT.
Kenergy asks anyone who may have a downed power line on their property to stay clear of the area and to contact Kenergy with specific location information by calling 800-844-4832.
