LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — More than 5,000 customers of Kentucky Utilities and Louisville Gas & Electric are still without power after strong thunderstorms rumbled through parts of Kentucky.
Brian Phillips, a spokesman for both utilities which are part of PPL Corp., said Monday that the bulk of the outages are between Louisville and Lexington.
The storm lashed the region with high winds and heavy rain Sunday night.
Phillips say about 1,300 customers in Woodford County are without electricity, along with about 1,000 customers in Fayette County. He says more than 800 LG&E customers in Jefferson and Oldham counties still have no electricity.
He says most of the outages should be restored by mid-day Monday.
The peak number of outages was about 27,000 KU or LG&E customers Sunday night.
