Co-op under normal operations, continues to monitor weather

A&N Electric Cooperative (ANEC) is under normal operations but will continue to monitor Hurricane Florence and local weather associated with the storm.

“We are very fortunate the storm’s path eventually took a more southern approach than initially anticipated,” said ANEC President and CEO Butch Williamson. “It looks like we will be spared from any severe impacts associated with this hurricane.”

The storm’s eye made landfall near Wilmington, North Carolina early Friday morning causing wide-spread power outages along the state’s coast and inland.
