Power Goes Out City-Wide Thursday in Murray
By WestKyStar Staff
MURRAY, KY - While there's never a convenient time to lose electricity, 7:45 am on a weekday does seem particularly inconvenient for students getting ready for school and their parents getting ready for work. Nonetheless, that's exactly what happened Thursday morning when a snake slithered into the primary source of power for Murray Electric System customers. General Manager Tony Thompson says power was lost to 8,000 customers for about 30 minutes.
Thompson says that not only was the city of Murray affected, but customers in eastern Calloway County as well.
Students at Murray High School gathered outside the building Thursday morning since there was no electricity inside for classes.
