Alabama Power crews working to restore service to 1,500

Posted: Updated:

Alabama Power crews continue working to restore service after approximately 1,500 central Alabama customers lost service Tuesday.

The crews were working to restore service to customers in Clanton, Auburn, Montgomery, and Wetumpka since approximately 9 a.m.

As of 10:30 a.m., service had been restored to all but approximately 70 customers. The remaining outages are affecting 40 in Auburn, 20 in Wetumpka and 10 in Montgomery.

It is not known at this time what caused the power outages.

Company officials will say that preliminary data suggests a new winter peak for demand was set for Alabama Power Tuesday morning as temperatures plunged into the teens. The previous winter peak was set on January 14, 2011.
