With the remnants of Hurricane Ike coming through the Tri-State it is no wonder that there are still 29,000 customers without electricity. The initial numbers Sunday night were closer to 40,000 customers. With devastations of this magnitude it will be some time until the electricity is restored to all homes. The Red Cross facility on Lynch Expressway is open and will remain open until all homes have electricity. We would also like to point out that in times like these, it is prudent to check the references of contractors in case repairs need to be done, to make sure you are dealing with reputable companies.
