Power Outages In Pike County

{Pikeville, Kentucky}...About 10,000 people in eastern Kentucky were without power after a storm blew through the region Friday night. Pike County spokesman Brandon Roberts said on Saturday that the overnight storm had complicated efforts to offer cooling stations in the area where the forecast high for the day was 102 degrees. Cooling stations were planned at the Mouthcard and Phelps Community Centers, but Robert said those facilities were without power. Roberts said most of the Sidney Canada area was without power Saturday morning and once it was restored, the Pike County Government would take a large generator to Feds Creek to supply power to the center.
