Farmers Electric Outage

Farmers Electric Cooperation in Chillicothe is reporting approximately 600 of their members are without power throughout the center of their service area as of 10:30AM this morning.

Substations affected include Chillicothe, Nettleton, Avalon, and Meadville. Heavy Snow on weakened tree limbs is causing them to bend and break and high winds are compounding the problem. Farmers electric crew are out, nut are having a difficult time getting around because of the drifting snow. If you see a downed power line, stay away and call 911 immediately. If your power is out and you have not already done so, you're asked to report it at 1-800-972-5334. At this time there is no timetable when power will be restored.
