Less than 70 Meriwether Lewis Electric Cooperative members remain without power this evening as crews continue repairing individual services. This number includes many locations where the homeowner will need to make repairs before service can be reconnected.
MLEC wraps up repairs with these final notes:
- If you are still without power, contact your local MLEC office. This verifies the cooperative is aware of isolated locations that were not returned to service once the main line was repaired.
- If the weatherhead at your home is torn down, an electrician will need to repair this before MLEC can restore power. See our website or Facebook page for additional information.
“It’s been a long battle for our communities and line crews, and we appreciate everyone’s help, patience and understanding as we pulled together in the aftermath of such a severe weather event,” says MLEC President and CEO Keith Carnahan. “It is in times like this that we really take note of how special it is to live and work in rural Tennessee. Our hometowns are special.”
