TCEC downed pole numbers rise
Great progress was made on Thursday restoring power to approximately 200 residential meters. TCEC will continue to do aerial damage assessment to areas still unreachable due to very wet and muddy conditions.
Thirty-one mutual aid and contractor crews including TCEC crews continue restoration efforts despite weather. The number of poles down and damaged structures rose about 1,900.
Intermittent outages will continue as repairs are done on the system to safely restore power to other areas. The TCEC member support is sincerely appreciated.
TCEC will continue to post regular updates with videos and photos to its Facebook page during the storm repairs. To view them, go to: https://www.facebook.com/tricountyelectric/.
