Despite muddy conditions, progress continues

TCEC crews and additional crews from other cooperatives and contractors are working to restore power to the remaining homes before the weekend. About 20 residences are without power this morning. We hope to have those restored by the weekend. About 300 total meters remain off.

Crews have replaced approximately 1800 of 2200 damaged poles in the last ten days. That is about 90 miles of line. Considering the muddy conditions requiring some of our equipment to be pulled by tractors and dozers, that is extraordinary. We appreciate all the farmers who have been helping pull our crews.

Employee stable after contact with energized line

One of our TCEC linemen came into contact with an energized line last night. The employee has been flown to a specialty hospital and is in stable condition at this time. Please keep the employee and his family in your thoughts and prayers. Additional details, such as the employee's name, are not being released. Thank you for your continued support as our team works to restore power following the recent storm.
