Crews continue to respond even during the storm, as long as it is safe to do so.
Until it stops raining, we are not able to fully assess the damage caused by the storm. We will post another update around 5 p.m. to let members know what crews expect based on what they have accomplished up to that point and based on how difficult it is to access locations, since most of the ground in the area is already saturated.
- Be sure your outage is reported through SmartHub or 1-866-MEC-ELEC.
- Stay safe.
- Do not approach downed power lines. Even if you do not have power, these lines can still have electricity running through them.
- Outage restoration follows a process, where power is restored to larger groups of members and then crews work down to individual locations.
- Do not drive through high water. Turn around, don't drown.
