City Water Light and Power is making steady progress at reconnecting customers who have been without power since Monday’s severe weather.
As of shortly before 1pm, around 600 CWLP customers were still without power. Local crews are being assisted by workers from other municipal utilities around the state under a mutual aid agreement.
A total of 8,000 customers were originally without power because of lines brought down by high winds and falling limbs. CWLP is asking anyone who is still without power and who hasn’t called since Monday to once again call the utility at 789-2121 and report the outage again, in order to speed the process of getting help where it is most needed.
