Line crews and tree trimming crews are working around the clock to restore power to everyone as soon as possible.
Customers are asked to please don’t come up to line crews in the field and to ensure that if they are using generators that they are properly installed so they don’t backfeed into the system and are ventilated so as to negate any risks from carbon monoxide poisoning.
