Cooperative Fights Weather to get Power Restored

The Guernsey-Muskingum Electric Cooperative says they hope to have power restored to customers by Wednesday night, but they could run into trouble from the winter weather rolling through the area Tuesday into Wednesday.

As it stands 118 customers in Muskingum and 499 in Guernsey County still are without service from the last round of winter weather.

The Cooperative says they are keeping an eye on the weather and say depending on the path and severity, power outages may be extensive and restoration unpredictable. They’re asking all members to prepare for extensive outages. All crews are working 16 hour days with extra crews from other parts of Ohio, Tennessee and Indiana.
