Crews Restore Power to 570 Members; 120 Remain Without Service
Friday, June 29, 2018

Southwestern linemen have restored power to 2,468 members since a severe storm brought down trees and damaged power lines early Thursday evening. As of 7:00 a.m. Friday, about 120 members are without power, down from 2,560 members Thursday night.

Southwestern personnel and contract crews worked through the night and will continue making repairs until service is restored. Southwestern expects to have full restoration by noon today.

Members are cautioned to avoid all downed and low-hanging power lines. Lines may be energized, or become energized without warning.
