Power and information

Meriwether Lewis Electric Cooperative (MLEC) finished restoring power to the remaining areas of Hickman County last night. Even with the worst flooding ever recorded, MLEC followed the receding floodwater quickly restoring power as soon as possible.

Drinking water is available at several locations. Centerville water system remains on a boil alert for drinking and cooking and they are asking for water conservation until further notice.
