Winter Storm Outage Restoration Efforts Complete
A&N Electric Cooperative is reporting that zero outages remain from the winter storm that passed through the region early Thursday morning. All outages associated with this winter storm were cleared by 9:15 pm Thursday night.
Crews worked around the clock to restore power for nearly 2,300 co-op members affected by outages during the storm.
“Our crews showed great commitment to our members throughout the entire storm response,” said Brian Charnock, ANEC’s Director of Operations and Construction Services. “They worked around the clock in bitter wind and snow to restore power to the Eastern Shore community affected by the winter storm.”
The winter storm brought heavy snow and gusting winds into the area. Snowfall totals reached 12 inches in some areas but gusting winds caused snow drifts that reached as tall as 3 feet. Snow drifting on secondary roads proved to be an issue that hampered the cooperative’s outage response.
Due to the hazardous road conditions the A&N Electric Cooperative Tasley office was closed on Friday, but our Operations Center remained open.
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.
