UPDATE: EPB reports 1,400 storm outages

As lines of storms thrashed Chattanooga on Monday evening, power outages spiked at 11:30 p.m. to nearly 1,400 customers without electricity, including 800 homes in Soddy-Daisy, according to city-owned utility EPB.

"Most of the problems are in the Soddy-Daisy area, Hixson and East Brainerd," said John Pless, public relations coordinator for EPB. "We have many crews working to restore everyone as quickly as possible."

Earlier in the evening, the number of power outages briefly hit 2,200, before the utility's Smart Grid restored electricity for many of those affected, Pless said.

Additional storms are expected throughout the evening, potentially keeping EPB crews busy for some time.
