Hickman-Fulton Counties Rural Electric Cooperative customers will experience a power outage this Sunday that could last up to eight hours.

The installation of new equipment at the Hickman substation will cause the outage that is set to begin at noon Nov. 9.

The utility’s Business and Member Services Director Debbie Weatherford says power will be restored as quickly as possible. 

Whitney grew up listening to Car Talk to and from her family’s beach vacation each year, but it wasn’t until a friend introduced her to This American Life that radio really grabbed her attention. She is a recent graduate from Union University in Jackson, Tenn., where she studied journalism. When she’s not at WKMS, you can find her working on her backyard compost pile and garden, getting lost on her bicycle or crocheting one massive blanket.
