UPDATE (6:50 p.m.):  Jackson Purchase Energy reports power has been restored to all of its customers.

BALLARD COUNTY, Ky. - Winds that passed through one Local 6 county Wednesday snapped four power poles, leaving a couple of hundred without power.

It happened in Ballard County.

Izelle White with Jackson Purchase Energy says, at one point, 256 were without power.  That number has since fallen to under 100.

Crews are working to repair the poles along Highway 286.  As a result, the road is closed.
