Update from NES:
NES crews are continuing power restoration efforts after last night’s storms. Power was knocked out to approximately 12,000 customers after severe storms dumped 3.5 inches of rain in some parts of the NES service area. The storms broke eight power poles and knocked down several power lines, causing scattered outages across the region. Tonight, there are over 1,000 customers without power, and additional crews have been brought in to assist. Crews will work around the clock until every customer has power.
As a reminder, if you see a downed power line, assume it is live and dangerous. Stay away and call 911 immediately.
