As many as 27,000 customers lost power this morning as winter storms continue moving through the state.
The forecast calls for freezing rain over and ice accumulations in central, western, and northern Arkansas for the next couple of days. Wind gusts are predicted throughout the state up to 25 mph today, and up to 20 mph in the northwest region of the state, Thursday night.
Crews are wrapping up restoration from the winter storm, but they will continue working until all customers who can take power can get it.
Restoration is complete for 93 percent of the customers who lost power during the Groundhog Day winter storm.
About 2,100 customers are awaiting power restoration after a winter storm knocked out power to more than 15,000 customers.
The winter storm has damaged dozens of utility poles and brought down numerous power lines. Crews are working hard to make repairs. Most customers who can accept power are expected to have it today.
