Severe storms, unfortunately, do happen and are devastating to homes, properties, and lives.
These storms can also take down power lines—creating a dangerous situation for all of us, including the lineworkers working hard to get your power turned back on.
How long it takes to get your power restored depends on the extent of the storm’s destruction, the number of outages, and when it becomes safe for utility personnel to get to the damaged areas. There are many steps in the assessment and restoration process—clearing downed power lines; ensuring public health and safety facilities are operational; checking power stations and transformers; repairing transmission lines, substations, and distribution lines; and getting power restored to members within the various damaged areas.
Be sure to contact the co-op immediately to report the outage by calling 918-756-0833 or by using the SmartHub app.
