We expect that number to continue to rise over the next few hours and will send the crews back out as soon as it’s safe for them to resume restoration. We appreciate your patience and please stay safe.
8/3 – 11:00 pm – We currently have some scattered outages affecting around 73 members. Crews are still out working to restore power as quickly and safely as possible.

We will continue to post updates periodically overnight and more frequently tomorrow. Stay safe, everyone.
