Storm Debris Drop-Off Sites Now Open

Louisville Metro officials say the city is making progress toward restoring electrical service to the numerous homes and businesses left without power during Sunday's windstorm.As of 10am today (Tuesday), 189,000 Louisville Gas and Electric Company customers were still without service, down from more than 300,000 at the height of the outage.Officials say there are no plans to open special shelters in the Louisville area at this point. Local Red Cross Director Brian Quail says shelters set up in other areas of the state are empty."The Red Cross at 510 East Chestnut still has its site open. We're open 24/7, so if people have a need, they can come to 150 East Chestnut and see us, but at this particular point in time throughout the state of Kentucky, the population is at zero for shelters," Quail said.Mayor Jerry Abramson also announced that the ten drop-off sites are now open for homowners to dump storm debris.They are:Hubbards Lane Public Works Facility, 595 Hubbards LaneMeriwether Public Works Facility, 600 Meriwether AvenueSouthwest Government Center, 7219 Dixie HighwayNewburg Public Works Facility, 3528 Newburg RoadShawnee Park, 4501 West BroadwayHighview Park, 7201 Outer LoopVettiner Park, 5550 Charlie Vettiner Park RoadMcNeeley Park, 10500 Cedar Creek RoadCox Park, 3730 River RoadSun Valley Park, 6616 Ashby Lane
