ANEC continues power restoration efforts during storm

A&N Electric Cooperative is reporting that as of 9:00 a.m. about 100 members were without power due to heavy winds affecting the Cooperative’s service area. This number is expected to fluctuate during the duration of the storm as crews work to restore power and high winds continue to affect portions of the cooperative's distribution system.

Scattered outages remain in some areas of Accomack County.

“Our crews were standing by, ready to address any outages associated with the storm,” said Kelvin Petit, A&N Electric Cooperative Vice President of Operations. “We’re working diligently to restore these remaining outages as quickly as possible. We continue to monitor the storm and its effects on the area.”

Members who have previously reported their outage, but have not yet been restored please report your outage again by using our SmartHub app or by calling 1-800-431-2632. In the event that your power goes out again, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Please stay away from all downed power lines. Consider all lines energized, as well as tree or limbs in contact with lines. Report downed power lines to ANEC or call 911. The Cooperative has contracted with professional tree trimmers to take care of those situations. Please do not try to free any wires tangled in tree limbs yourself.

ANEC provides electric service to nearly 35,000 homes, farms and businesses in Accomack and Northampton Counties in Virginia and Somerset County, Maryland. For more information, visit www.anec.com or follow us on Facebook and Twitter for regular updates.
