Spring Hill Customers Asked To Conserve Power

CREATED Jun 8, 2014

SPRING HILL, Tenn. – Although power has been restored to most customers in Spring Hill, city officials have asked many residents to conserve electricity until 8 p.m.

Officials with the Spring Hill Emergency Communications Division asked residents who live south of Miles Johnson Parkway to voluntarily conserve power until 8 p.m. Sunday.

Saturday evening, strong storms moved through Middle Tennessee, prompting severe thunderstorm warnings and a few tornado warnings. Spring Hill received some of the most severe damage, when a thunderstorm producing winds up to 60-miles-per-hour swept through the area.

Around 11 p.m. more than 2,000 customers were without power in the area.

Motorists were urged to remain off of the roadways, especially in the areas along Main Street, Murray Hill Street and Depot Street, due to the threat of downed trees and power lines. At least 11 utility poles were reported down on Highway 31, across from the General Motors Assembly Plant.

Crews worked through the much of the evening and throughout the evening to restore power to the area.

Power has been restored to most of the area.
