Clay hit hardest by snow

Clay County was hit hardest by Sunday’s snowstorm, according to Jackson Energy spokesperson, Karen Combs.

In a press release, Combs said that 1,300 outages were reported in Clay County, far more than any other county.  She said a main power line serving the Oneida area was hit by damage, causing a loss of power to over 140 homes Sunday night.  There were smaller outages throughout the rest of the county.

Crews were expected to have all power restored by noon on Monday.

Kentucky Utilities, which serves part of the Manchester area, reported six outages affecting 36 customers.

KU spokesperson Cliff Feltham said that 15 customers were without power from approximately 5 p. m. Sunday to 5 a. m. Monday because of trees on lines and broken poles.  The other customers were in the Chadwell Road area.  Trees on lines caused loss of power from approximately 9:40 p. m. to 5:30 a. m.
