OUTAGE UPDATE 3/4/2020: UCEMC crews have restored power to more than 1800 homes in the Carthage area. However, 150-200 outages in Carthage remain due to 16 broken poles. In Cookeville, lines to 2000 homes along Highway 70, West Locust Grove Rd., and Bloomington Rd. are out of service and are being worked on at this time. The UCEMC Cookeville District office sustained significant harm, and communications systems are down. We are re-routing outage calls to other district offices to serve you. Thank you for your patience as we all work together in this recovery and repair effort across the UCEMC service area.
UCEMC offers these tips to help you stay safe:
- Be wary about being out on the roads until the "all clear" by officials.
- Don't go into standing water; there may be a downed power line that you can't see nearby.
- Stay far away from all UCEMC equipment, downed poles, and power lines.
- Please allow our crews to do our jobs to get your power restored.
