Temperatures have plummeted today in Paris and the surrounding River Valley communities. The day began with temperatures in the mid-40s, and by 4 p.m. today, most communities were reporting temperatures in the mid-teens.

In Paris at approximately 2:30 p.m., the power in the city went out for a second time. Earlier in the day, the power went offline very briefly and was later followed by an outage that lasted approximately 90 minutes. RNN spoke with Paris mayor Daniel Rogers, and the mayor reported, “Our electric crew is out looking for what caused the outage. They are confident that it is something minor, and once identified it should be a quick repair. It’s one of eight circuits throughout the city that is out, so hopefully they will find the issue very soon. We will let our residents know if it is something worse than expected shortly.”

In a matter of just a few minutes after the mayor made his comments, the power was restored for the residents of Paris. At publication time for this story, the temperature in Paris was 12 degrees with light snow.
