Several area residents without power following Saturday’s storms

Saturday’s storm activity has knocked out power to several area residents. North Arkansas Electric Cooperative has restored power to the majority of its Baxter County members, but they continue to work as they still have over 2,700 of its total members without power. Additional crews from other Arkansas Electric Cooperatives are on their way to assist, and NAEC posted on Facebook it may be Monday before power is fully restored.

Several trees and power lines were knocked down, and power poles were damaged on Saturday. At its peak, the cooperative had nearly 8,000 members without power.

As of 11:45 Sunday morning, NAEC had 33 members without power in Baxter County, 175 in Fulton County, 1,071 in Izard County and one in Stone County. The cooperative’s main concentration is Sharp County, where 1,453 members are without power.

Entergy Arkansas is also reporting several outages in north central Arkansas. The company shows power out to two customers in Fulton County, 11 in Izard County, three in Searcy County, five in Stone County and 23 in Boone County.

No injuries have been reported from Saturday’s storms.
