As of Tuesday evening some Duck River Electric Membership customers continued to be without power in the Manchester area and some of you may be in need of shelter.
The Coffee County Emergency Management along with support of the Manchester Fire Department has opened an emergency shelter at the Coffee County Raider Academy.
The shelter is open now through Thursday. Low temperatures are expected to dip to around zero on Wednesday and single digits on Thursday.
Emergency personnel want area citizens to understand there is a place for them to stay warm. Volunteers are needed, contact Coffee County Emergency Management or the Manchester Fire Department for more information. If school is back in session on Thursday in Coffee County, the shelter will move to the community room at the Coffee County Administration Plaza in Manchester.
The Red Cross has provided cots and the school does have restroom facilities and showers in the locker rooms. They are also prepared to feed if necessary.
If your electric power is not back on yet, Duck River Electric Membership Corporation is working as quickly as possible to restore all power. Click here for an update on the DREMC power grid http://outagemap.dremc.com:8182/ More pictures below.
