Power outages affect utility manager, fire chief

MANGUM, Okla. (AP) - Among the more than 3,600 homes and
businesses still without power after the Jan. 28 winter storm are
the superintendent of Mangum utilities and the fire chief of Altus.
Mangum utilities superintendent Terry Warren says he's been told
to expect to be without electricity for another month. Warren is
also a former lineman for Harmon Electric Association - which is
the company working to restore power.
Altus Fire Chief J.R. Wheeler says his Jackson County home has
been without electricity since the storm hit. He says his family is
now using a friend's generator to power his house.
The state Corporation Commission reports 3,637 homes and
businesses still without power and all are served by a rural
electric cooperative.
