NASHVILLE (WSMV) - Following the devastating, and life altering tornadoes that swept through middle Tennessee on Tuesday morning, NES workers have found themselves as busy as ever to bring light back to people's lives.
Since beginning the work, crews have been able to restore power to over 35,000 customers in the area.
As of Thursday night, about 15,000 were still without power.
Right now, it is estimated that 716 power poles have been broken from the storm. This is compared to the 200 power poles broken following the 1998 tornado.
NES has launched a website with helpful information in the aftermath of the storm which includes frequently asked questions, resources and ways to help others in the community.
NES is hoping that if all goes well repairing the substations and transmission lines, most customers should expect to have power back by Monday, however, that is not a guarantee.
