1,200 without power in Clark County
9:53 PM, Saturday, July 7, 2012
An Indiana electric cooperative hopes to have power restored by 3:30 a.m. to some 1,200 customers who were without electricity after a substation in Charlestown, Ind., went down late Saturday afternoon.
A worker at the Clark County REMC, a rural electric cooperative, said that the Bethany Road Substation failed about 4:50 p.m., cutting off power to homes in the area.
The temperature Saturday reached 106 degrees in Louisville less than a half hour after the substation failed, leaving those customers without air conditioning.
