Over 74,000 without power as storms move through Mid-South
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - With outages sprawled across the Mid-South, MLGW’s Doug McGowan released a statement on when and how the company will get the city’s power up and running.
McGowan addressed the public in the following tweet:
According to the MLGW outage map, the number of customers affected is currently over 74,000 as of 4:00 p.m., July 21.
This means that several customers throughout the Mid-South are still without power as the storms continue to rage.
Action News 5 spoke with Doug McGowan earlier this week about the recent outages and the company’s efforts to restore power in a timely manner.
Storms earlier in the week left approximately 141,000 MLGW customers in Memphis and Shelby County without power. This prompted MLGW to work around the clock, knocking the number down to 13,000 within a matter of 48 hours.
Now, with current conditions, MLGW is working to mediate that old damage while working on the new outages.
