Power outage in Worthington still scheduled for midnight Wednesday

Posted Wednesday, June 10, 2009, at 9:33 AM

As of mid-Wednesday morning, there's nothing new to report about tonight's scheduled power outage in Worthington. Looks like it's still going to be happening, Wednesday night, June 10, around midnight. Duke Energy calls it "de-energizing the line." I call it a blackout.

It's expected to take three to four hours to repair the main line coming into town so the power should be restored by 4 a.m. Thursday, June 11.

On Tuesday evening, Town Marshal Dennis Conaway said with every light in town off, it's going to be really dark but the WPD is prepared. Dennis said to pass the word to Worthington citizens that he will have all officers out and about around town during the outage.

The plan to make the repair could possibly be changed by the weather conditions.

On Wednesday morning, the general forecast for Worthington from the National Weather Service looked like this:

Today: Showers and thunderstorms likely. Some of the storms could produce heavy rain. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 77. East wind between 5 and 7 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. New rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.

Tonight: A 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Some of the storms could produce heavy rain. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 65. South southeast wind around 6 mph becoming calm. New rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.
