Randolph County Office of Emergency Management Director Jim Wise said power is beginning to parts of the county. He said Pickens, portions of Beverly and Elkins have electricity and the power company is working to restore the service to the rest of the county.
Wise said there are no plans to turn off power to any parts of the county. He said the rumors circulating about power being turned off are not trhe.
"They (the power company) are trying to get it running in all of the county," Wise said.
He said Beverly is begging to run low on water, but generators are currently in route to power the water treatment plant.
"They may have to shut some places down," he said. "Once the generators are running they will pump water."
The Elkins water treatment plant is back up and running.
Elkins Operations Manager Bob Pingley said water treatment plant is up and running and storage tanks should be full by 6 p.m.
"We've cleaned up as many streets as we can," he said. "The rest have lines down and we can not touch those.
