Jacksonville, Ark. — Jan. 11, 2020 – As of 8:30 a.m. First Electric’s crews are working to safely restore power to 31 scattered outages impacting 1,181 members.

Also in Lonoke County, more than 160 members in the Austin area have an extended outage also due to broken poles. Estimated times of restoration for both areas may be extended due to the location and difficulty to replace the poles.
