Hundreds Still Waiting For Power Restoration in Wood County

Some are still in the dark after that nasty storm Tuesday.

That includes many on Lake Washington.

Rodney Starcher, who lives on Lake Washington, is among those still waiting for the power to come back on.

Starcher says it went off immediately during Tuesday's storm.

Thursday afternoon there were still limbs and lines down in that area.

Starcher says he's lived there 32 years and they are always among the last to get power restored.

"After the derecho everybody bought generators and you know, luckily we can run the refrigerator and fans and have lights in the bathrooms and stuff on the generator but you know, it's still a hardship to gas up your generators and do all that and switch everything around but you know, that's just part of life, really," says Starcher.

Around 800 were still in the dark in Wood County as of Thursday afternoon.

Mon Power says power should be restored for everyone by early Saturday at the latest.
