FLORENCE, KY (FOX19) - The power has been restored in a Florence trailer park Monday after being off for over 24 hours.

According to Duke Energy, an underground conduit was crushed on Sunday afternoon, cutting off power to Mosby's Point near Dixie Highway and Mt. Zion Roads in Florence. A field supervisor for Duke Energy says that this sort of accident is the worst case scenario for a power loss.

Duke Energy had to find out exactly which conduit was destroyed, and then workers had to dig underneath the street to replace the broken conduit.

The power is now restored to Mosby's Point, and residents there are now resting cooler.
