NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – More than 75,000 customers were affected by power outages around Nashville, according to Nashville Electric Service.
The outages come as severe weather rolled through the area early Saturday morning.
As of 9 p.m. Saturday, crews have restored power to 67,000 customers. Currently, about 28,000 customers remain without power and crews are working around the clock to restore it.
NES says the hardest hit areas follow a path from Cockrill Bend in West Nashville all the way to Hendersonville, and in southern Davidson County in the areas of Radnor, Antioch, Cane Ridge and Old Smyrna Road. Crews determined 49 primary distribution circuits lost power and over 100 power poles were broken.
Crews expect to restore power to all major infrastructure units by Monday, which will bring power back to a majority of customers. After that, crews will start working on the remaining customers who have independent, individual outages. The timeline for those outages could be 5-7 days.
