Power outages close Farragut schools

FARRAGUT, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Power outages forced two Farragut schools closed early Monday morning. Farragut Middle School will dismiss at 10:30 a.m. while the Intermediate School lets out at 11:15 a.m.

Knox Co. Schools said buses will take the students, but if parents wanted they could come get them.

The early dismissal was the result of "unforeseen power issues" that are expected to take the Lenoir City Utilities Board a while to repair.
