Customers in Harrison, Clark, and Floyd counties may have to wait a week for power to be restored

Some residents and businesses in Southern Indiana got their power back on Monday.  But the utility that serves rural Harrison, Floyd, and Clark counties says some customers may have to wait up to a week.

New Middletown, a small community south of Corydon, was one of the hardest-hit areas.  But early Monday afternoon some residents got some good news.

As others continued to wait for power, Matt Gleitz was helping out by taking a generator door-to-door.

A utility crew near Lanesville showed off why the repair process will be slow going.  They had replaced a broken utility pole when Fox 41's Dick Irby caught up with them.  But they were just starting the job of moving utility lines from the broken pole to the new one.

As they wait, many were passing the time pursuing propane, ice, and other products that make it easier to live without electricity.  But since businesses don't have power either, few are open.

Thanks to two generators, Mr. Hardware in Georgetown was open and busy, especially its chain saw chain sharpening machine.
