We have received word of a scheduled power outage here in Shelby in our immediate area. This "scheduled" outage, to repair recent damage caused by lightning will begin at midnight tonight (Monday) and continue until 6 o'clock tomorrow, Tuesday morning. Most all of Shelby will be involved with the exception of part of the hill on the south side of town. Also affected will be all of the Galata and F-Bridge-Ledger areas along with everything west of town, to and including Ethridge and it's surrounding area. The Western Area Power Administration apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause their members and is thanking all concerned for their patience in this matter. In the meantime, do what I'm going to do...GRAB A FLASHLIGHT!
