Power outages have been an issue across East Tennessee this week as winter storms brought down trees and took out power lines. Sevier County Electric System has had outages since Monday. At one point more than 20,000 SCES customers were without power.
As of noon Friday the Sevier County utility provider said 5,581 customers were still without power.
