More than 800 customers were without power because a transformer needed to be replaced. Residents say many in town bought generators after the 2009 Ice Storm that left some in Clay without power for a few weeks. But some didn't think their generators were necessary.
"i didn't hook mine up yesterday because i thought it'd be back on almost anytime," says Bob Williams of Clay. "But, most everyone now has a gas generator or got access to one."
An emergency shelter was set up at Webb Memorial Church on Friday, but emergency officials say few residents used it that night.
