(September 1, 2017) — Losing ground, but not our spirit. Continued heavy rains, increased wind speeds, and saturated grounds are not playing nice with electric equipment today. As some repairs are made, the weather is creating even more.
With the ground being so soft, poles, connected equipment, and trees are leaning and falling taking electric equipment with them. At present, some 1700 MLEC members are without power. Rest assured that crews and additional hands are already in the area to assist.
