Damaged Lines Interrupt Power to Madison County Members
Monday, December 30, 2019

8 a.m.

Southwestern members in Madison County experienced outages overnight and this morning after high winds and rain damaged lines west of the cooperative’s Edwardsville Substation. After identifying the source of the outage, crews de-energized lines to make repairs. Linemen restored power shortly before 7:30 a.m.

Members are cautioned to avoid all downed and low-hanging lines, as they may be energized or become energized at any time.
