Power Outage Figures From Storms Dropping

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A Kentucky official says there are fewer than 9,000 customers without power since ice and wind storms pounded the state.

Public Service Commission spokesman Andrew Melnykovych said Monday morning that about 5,000 customers remained without power from the Jan. 27 ice storm, down from more than 700,000 power
outages at the peak of the storm.

Melnykovych says about 3,600 customers were without power from a wind storm that struck last week with reported gusts of up to 62 miles per hour.
