A Kentucky official says there are fewer than 9,000 customers without power since ice and wind storms pounded the state.
Public Service Commission spokesman Andrew Melnykovych said Monday morning that about 5,000 customers remained without power from the Jan. 27 ice storm, down from more than 700,000 power outages at the peak of the storm.
Melnykovych says about 3,600 customers were without power from a wind storm that struck last week with reported gusts of up to 62 miles per hour.
We are know almost 3 weeks post ice storm and there are still thousands of customers without electricity. In the 21st century, how can this be?
With the government spending so much time and energy trying to prevent terrorist attacks on US soil, they don't seem worried about the disastrous effects of Mother Nature. This was just a moderate ice storm - what kind of shape would we be in if this had been a terrorist attack instead of an attack by Mother Nature.
