3-29 Spring Storm Update

March 29, 8 a.m. - We have had crews working all night and continue to work through the morning to restore power to the many members in our service area. Last night's storm peaked with 1,358 members without power due to high winds, lightning, and 6 broken poles.

However, we have been able to restore a majority of members and currently, there are 30 outages affecting 214 members.

Our team works long hours to ensure that we get the power back on as quickly as possible. Thank you for your continued patience and support!

More than 500 members out of power

Wednesday, March 28, 9 a.m. - A rogue lightning strike set this pole in the Calallen area on fire about 30 minutes ago. With the assistance and supervision of the Annaville Fire Dept., NEC journeyman lineman John went up in the bucket and extinguished the fire. Currently, more than 500 members are out of power due to this outage.

Severe Storms Expected Overnight

Wednesday, March 28 - Tonight's forecast calls for some severe storms throughout our service area. Remember, our hardworking crews will be on standby ready to restore any outages that may occur due to the weather overnight! We appreciate the support and patience of all of our members during storms like this, especially as we work to keep our employees and members safe while getting the lights back on.

Potential breach of member financial information

Our financial institution, Frost Bank, has informed us there was an unauthorized access to their lockbox banking system earlier this week and that there is a potential that NEC's lockbox could have been accessed.

This would only affect our members who make check payments by mail.
