NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Electric power is being restored in hard-hit northwestern Tennessee.
Gibson Electric Membership Corp. spokeswoman Rita Alexander advised Thursday morning that electricity to about 3,500 customers was restored overnight, leaving about 8,000 people out of service. Most of those were in Obion and Lake counties with a few in Dyer County.
Officials said it could take days to restore all the power.
Travel is still difficult with limbs and trees down on roads.
The Red Cross is supplying two shelters in the region with cots, meals and blankets.
