No power outages in Anderson reported

County remains under snow emergency

ANDERSON – Despite the frigid temperatures this morning, Anderson Light & Power is reporting no power outages.

The temperature in Anderson at 10 a.m. was still minus-14 degrees with a forecast high of 3 above zero, according to the National Weather Service in Indianapolis.

David Eicks, a dispatcher with Anderson Light & Power, said all the electrical power in the service area was restored between 2 and 2:30 a.m.

“There are no outages,” said Eicks, who is also president of Anderson City Council. “When a storm like this hits; the guys will work around the clock. We have a full crew working this morning.”

Eicks said a crew from Richmond Light and Power helped the city workers until Monday afternoon.

Alisha Cummings, public information officer for the city of Anderson, said at the peak there were 1,300 customers without electricity on Monday, but it had been reduced to 40 in less than 24 hours.

She said the city’s Snow Task Force continues to work on clearing city streets, particularly in the neighborhoods.

Best Way Disposal hoped to pick up trash in Anderson on Wednesday.

Madison County Commissioner John Richwine said the county remains under a snow emergency, but that could be downgraded to a travel advisory this afternoon.

“The Highway Department is continuing to work in 12-hour shifts,” Richwine said. “It helped that the wind died down overnight.”

Madison County government offices should reopen on Wednesday, he said.
