The warming center set up at the McGee Center for the past two days has been taken down, Conway Fire Chief Bart Castleberry said Friday morning. He has been informed by Entergy that Faulkner County electricity is back on.
"We had a few people with us yestterday and five people last night," Castleberry said. The warming center was set up Wednesday after power outages throughout Faulkner County following the snowstorm that blanketed the state.
Entergy Arkansas has reported that about 112,000 customers remain without electricity as the state braces for freezing rain this weekend.
The power company says the greatest number of outages remain in the Little Rock area where nearly 65,000 are without power and may not have service restored until next week.
