Hi, I live in North Knoxville - off Cedar Lane. BUT I'm at work in W. Knox so I am wondering if anyone knows if the power is back on in North Knox yet?

Thanks a bunch!

Thank you for your reply. Our power was off from 8p.m. Tuesday until 3p.m. Wednesday. I am thankful we have it on now, today is Thursday and many people still have no power. Lots of people will lose all of the food in their frig, etc. Thanks again for your reply!
