POWER OUTAGE CONTINUES… Multiple public reports this evening continue to come in of a significant power outage happening in southern Conecuh and northern Escambia counties in south Alabama. This is presumably because of the intense storms that moved through these areas in the 9PM hour. No word yet on when power will be restored for those customers who are without power, but we know local power companies and electric cooperatives are aware of these outages.
