CITY RESIDENT EXPRESSES CONCERN OVER ESSENTIAL SERVICES STILL "DOWN"

 CREWS WERE MAKING PROGRESS GETTING POWER AND OTHER ESSENTIAL SERVICES RESTORED LATE ON TUESDAY 

THE TOTAL NUMBER OF POWER OUTAGES IN HENDERSON COUNTY WAS DOWN TO 190 BY DAYBREAK WEDNESDAY MORNING   

A RESIDENT OF HILLPARK DRIVE EXPRESSED CONCERN ABOUT SOME SERVICES STILL "DOWN" AND E-MAILED WHKP.COM NEWS ON TUESDAY:   

V 05BF

Mr. Freeman-

The Hendersonville residents on Hillpark Drive, a dead end street off 3rd Ave West, are in the second day of no access or egress1. Making matters worse, the power has been off since noon yesterday. A tree fell across the road effectively blocking all traffic in or out, including emergency vehicles, and knocked down power, phone, and cable lines. Duke Energy’s website2 doesn’t reflect the dozens of customers affected, including a group home for the disabled. I have E-Mailed the mayor and city manager with no response. Perhaps mentioning this story over the air and on your website would help to at least get the street opened so we can get to food and shelter.

Anything you can do will be appreciated.

Yours truly,

Eric Pfeifer
