Animals cause power outages in Christian, Todd County

Much of Christian and Todd County spent some of their evening and overnight hours without electricity, thanks to animals who got into places they were never meant to be.

Just over 5,500 members in Todd County, including all of Elkton, were in the dark  due to a racoon who got into a substation. Crews were out quickly and were able to restore that outage in a little over an hour.

Meanwhile, 3,581 members in Christian County were put in the dark briefly early Sunday morning by a small animal that got in the Casky Substation.

That issue was quickly addressed and everyone was put back online.
