WOODFORD COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) – About 8,000 people are still without power in Woodford County as of 6:30p.m. on Sunday evening.

Woodford County Emergency Management officials say KU tells them the areas with the most outages, Midway and Versailles, will have the power back by Monday at midnight because major repairs have to be made to the infrastructure. They say power could be restored even earlier though if the work moves quickly.

A charging station has been set up in the Woodford County Courthouse basement for people who need to charge phones and other devices. It will be open until Sunday at 8:00p.m. and will reopen on Monday at 8:00a.m. 

A shower station has also been set up at the Falling Springs Parks and Recreation building. People can go there to shower until Sunday at 7:00p.m. and it will reopen on Monday at 5:30a.m.

The Red Cross is handing out clean up kits in the parking lot behind the courthouse until Sunday at 8:00p.m.

Residents can drop off debris at the Woodford County Recycling Center free of charge. 

If you live in Versailles, you can cut up your debris into 3 foot sections and city crews will come around to pick it up.

Midway residents should take your debris to the Spring Station Road location.
