Mondays high winds knocked out power to hundreds of VEC Customers. Crews were out in full force to restore electricity in the blustery weather. At 6:30 p.m. CT Monday, the VEC Outage Map showed almost 700 customers in Cumberland County without electricity and 152 in Overton County. VEC reminds everyone to never touch, walk or drive over downed power lines. When you see power lines on the ground following a storm, stay away, warn others to stay away and contact the electric utility.

Crews also blocked off a portion of Genesis Road at Interstate Drive on Monday after high winds bent the pole supporting the Speedway sign, causing a potential falling hazard.

The winds also did not bode well for firefighters. At noon Monday, the Forestry Division reported 47 active fires in Tennessee with 14,781 acres burned over a 24 hour period.
