Thousands of customers with the Lenoir City Utilities Board were left without power when outages occurred in areas of West Knoxville on Tuesday night.
The cause of the outage is unknown at this time. LCUB is working on restoring power to affected customers. Residents with LCUB can look at LCUB’s outage map to determine the areas without power.
To stay cool while the power is out, people should drink plenty of water and close off the warmest rooms. If they have battery-powered fans, they should use them. Stepping onto the front porch and getting some fresh, evening air can also help bring down a person’s temperature.
When Will the Power Come Back on?
As of yet, there has been no official cause given as to why there has been a power outage, and until the utility can identify the root of the problem, it can’t fix it. Meaning that currently, there is no word on when the power will come back, but we do know that it is working hard to fix it.
What Do I Do When the Power is out?
It’s important throughout power outages to remain safe and calm. As Knoxville is currently experiencing a heatwave, which is set to break right before the weekend, this power outage means a lot of people won’t be able to use their fans or air conditioners.
However, there are quite a few things that you can do to remain cool throughout a heat wave. This includes drinking plenty of water, as well as closing the windows in the hottest rooms, as this will prevent warm air from coming in.
There are also battery-powered fans available, so anyone that has one should absolutely use it. We also recommend waiting (if you can) until the temperature slightly drops and there is cooler air outside, and then stepping on to your front porch or backyard. This can help lower your body temperature if it is too high.
We will be regularly updating this article as more information rolls in on this power outage, so keep checking back for more information.
