Over 100 customers are without power after a utility pole fell on a Kewanee Trash Truck on Roosevelt Avenue. We do not have further details at this time.

There have been secondary outages in the downtown area affecting Stop Lights and Regional Media Studios.  Public Works Director, Kevin Newton, said Wednesday’s trash will be collected first thing Thursday Morning.  The trash truck was not damaged in the incident

We have reached out the Kewanee Police Department for more details.  We have reached out to Gary Bradley and Kevin Newton regarding trash pickup.
