Power has been out on Church Street, Barton Road, Cato Street and I believe part of Dry Creek Road for a week also. I don't notice any major damage to trees in this area.

The lower half of big draft is a disaster! I live up here on big draft Monague isn't as bad as the other side. Power lines down or hanging at least two power poles are down along with several trees uprooted! Its a miracle nobody got hurt!

There is information at www.firstenergycorp.com regarding the restoration of power to areas hit by the storms. I hope this is helpful to you.

Does anyone know why they haven't even cleaned up the roads yet ? I heard it may take a month to get power up Big Draft. Anyone else feel as though they are waiting until the pga to finish before touching it so it doesn't glitch their power?

Yes our pastor lives up big draft and said it was a total mess. I live up 92 and half of our road is still without power so I know how frustrating it is for anyone living up big draft. Praying they get us all up and running soon

Believe it or not First Energy on its web sight says all Greenbrier Co will b back on line tomorrow. We will see. I don't think it will happen. Everyone without power post tomorrow night if u still don't have power.

At 6:00 this evening, as the PGA was ending, the power trucks started rolling up big draft and we had power within an hour....amazing....Again, not blaming the men working they are doing all they can, but the powers that be is a different story.....

...makes you wonder was it really a "state of emergency" or a "state of who has money and who doesn't"

I still haven't gotten power up here yet and I live 5 miles up big draft! I saw 3 trucks on Montague when I got off work at 5:00 then saw 4 trucks at Eakle trucks, my sister passed them all going back down the road. I was in town getting gas for the generator about 9:30 and saw 3 trucks in food lion parking lot rolling out! So I'm hoping and praying that we get it back tomorrow on the draft!!
