Storm causes destruction

GLASGOW — A storm that rolled through in the wee hours

Wednesday bringing an EF-2 tornado through

Smiths Grove and high winds elsewhere in the region

left thousands of Barren Countians and others

without electricity, though most had power restored

by afternoon.

“It was a mess this morning,” said Caralyne

Wright, director of member and public communications

for Farmers Rural Electric Cooperative Corp.,

which serves several counties but primarily Barren,

Hart and Metcalfe. Only about half a dozen poles

were broken, but issues contributing to outages were

spread around the entire service area, which includes

3,500 miles of lines, so drive time has to be factored in with overall repair time,

she said.

“We’re covering a lot of

ground, basically,” Wright

said. “The worst of it was

centered in southern Barren

County.”
