Electric Operations Superintendent Mark Kight said the outage was caused when a car struck a utility pole about 1:00 am Wednesday. The outage occurred in south Dothan.
It took up to five hours before up to 500 customers had power restored.
The outage occurred as temperatures hovered between 18-21 degrees. Some electrical providers, including those in central Alabama, experience outages due to heavy demand caused by the unusually cold temperatures.
