1000 In Coopertown Without Power Monday Night
COOPERTOWN TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – On the heels of back to back power-outages in the Greenbrier area, MORE over 1000 CEMC Coopertown customers are without power this evening.
According to officials, the power went out around 9:30pm. According to 911 dispatch there are no reports of trees down or motor vehicle accidents in the area.
CEMC has been notified and is at present looking for the issue. The high temperatures increase the demand for power which tends to find weaknesses in power-grids.
