WIDESPREAD OUTAGES DUE TO STORM:
Our Electric Department is working hard this morning due to the storm.
We currently have just under 1,500 customers with power outages across our service territory. We have all Electric Linemen and Engineers on deck and dispatched across the County. There are two broken poles on Wrights Ferry Road that the Electric Department is working on as well. We are working on assessing all damage and restoring power to residences and businesses as quickly as possible.
We appreciate your patience as we continue to resolve this issue.
