There were two large power outages covering a good portion of Robertson county Sunday. Both outages lasted about two hours each. We initially thought it was just Greenbrier but now know it covered a much larger area of the county. Springfield seemed to be the least effected. The first outage started around 7AM Sunday morning and the second hit around 3PM Sunday afternoon.
Around 4:30PM Smokey spoke to Cumberland Electric, they said it was “a Primary” A primary feeds 4 power stations. They said crews are working on it and more information will be made available to us later. Stay tuned to Smokey for more details.
