WINTER STORM WARNING
March 1 thru March 3, 2014
DANVILLE, KY – The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning in effect from 4:00 PM Sunday through 1:00 PM Monday for the entire Inter-County Energy service area. There's a slidehsow at the bottom of the page showing our area.
The main impact will be 3 – 7” of snow and sleet along with 0.25 – 0.75 inches of ice accumulation. Tree damage and the chance of power outages are very likely. Freezing rain, sleet and a wintery mix accumulating on power lines and poles could cause poles and electric wires to snap.
Please listen to your local radio stations for weather and power outage updates or log on to www.intercountyenergy.net. Remember to PLAY IT SAFE AROUND ELECTRICITY and stay clear of downed power lines.
Downed power lines and outages can be reported to Inter-County Energy by calling 1-866-224-2235, 24/7. Due to the extended area of this winter storm in the mid-west and central U.S., our call center may experience high call volume. We appreciate your patience during this time.
Remember to PLAY IT SAFE AROUND ELECTRICITY and stay clear of downed power lines. Report outages, downed power lines or other emergencies to Inter-County Energy by calling the Outage Reporting Line at 1-866-224-2235.
