A fallen power line on Rock Riffle Road has caused outages for about 1,000 Athens residents Thursday afternoon.
Some Uptown businesses announced on Twitter that their power was down. Power also went out on Clarke Street, West Stimson Avenue and Elliot Street, Jessica Wright, a spokeswoman for American Electric Power, said.
Ok. Power is currently out, thanks @AEPOhio yet again. We are iced and able to do cold Sammie, cold drinks, including cold brew. Cash only— Brenen's Coffee Cafe (@Brenens) April 20, 2017
She projected the power would be fixed between 3:45 and 4 p.m.
Brenen's Coffee Cafe announced on Twitter its power returned around 3:25 p.m.
We're back baby! Power is on and delicious Sammie and drinks can continue. Thanks everyone!— Brenen's Coffee Cafe (@Brenens) April 20, 2017
