Millington area schools out one more day

Eleven Shelby County Schools will not be in session Thursday, March 6. All District bus lots can now be accessed, and power has been restored at all schools. Additionally, temperatures are expected to remain above freezing. 

All before- and after-school activities, including athletics, will be held as regularly scheduled at schools that are open. The District’s Facilities and Maintenance staff worked extremely hard to clear sidewalks and school lots of debris and ensure schools are safe for students to return. While road conditions are greatly improved across the city and county, we urge parents and employees to use caution when driving to and from school.

MLGW Restoration Update: 4 p.m. Wednesday, March 5, 2014

4,000 without power

(March 5, 2014) As of 4 p.m., about 4,000 customers remain without power. MLGW employees will work into the night to restore services.

MLGW crews and mutual aid crews continue to work heavily in the northwest part of Shelby County (Frayser, Shelby Forest, Millington), where the storm’s damage was heaviest.

MLGW is asking customers who are still without power to call the MLGW Outage Hotline at 544-6500 to make sure their outage is logged in the system. To report an outage, customers will need to have their account number or the phone number that’s associated with their account.

To report an emergency such as downed wires or gas leaks, please call 528-4465. This number should be treated like 911 and only used for these types of emergencies.

Downed Power Lines
MLGW is reinforcing the need for safety around downed power lines and other potential hazards. Customers should avoid contact with downed power lines—even if their home or area has experienced a loss of power the lines could still be energized

Customers are also asked to avoid the immediate area where MLGW crews are working. These work sites can be extremely hazardous.

Outage numbers can be tracked via MLGW’s outage map at
