ROCKFORD (WIFR) --The recent increase in power outages in the Stateline has some local residents are taking the matter into their own hands.
Generator sales at Blain's Farm & Feet have seen a spike this summer. The store manager says the increase of sales started about a week and a half ago, after storms knocked out the power for some in the area for a week.
She says at the peak of the outage they sold around 50-to-70 generators in a couple of days and are still selling at least one daily.
