Hurricane Hanna Restoration Update: 7/27, 8 am

NEC crews continue their work to get the final group of member lights back on. With a storm like this, sometimes we have additional outages that occur a couple days later and we will continue to address those this week as they occur. Construction jobs scheduled at this time will be suspended so our crews may continue to dedicate themselves to power restoration following Hanna. As of this morning, we have had 4,963 members with power interruptions since the storm began. 122 members remain without power at this time.
