Hurricane Harvey: the storm is not over yet

As of 11 a.m., we have approximately 5,000 members without power.

The National Weather Service is expecting #HurricaneHarvey to be circling back around to the SW and back into our area. Moderate flooding is expected, especially in the Bluntzer and Calallen area. Winds are expected to exceed 50mph throughout the day, which means that for their safety, our crews are unable to begin any widespread repairs.

Thank you for your patience during this difficult time and remember to stay safe. This storm is not over just yet. #Outage #OutageViewer #StormSoldiers #NECRestores

NEC experiencing widespread outages
