The power restoration continues. The number of members without electricity is now down to less than 200. The crews are diligently working and changing out broken poles and several broken cross arms on E 640 Rd. We hope to get this task accomplished before dark today. This will restore power to about 170 members on Peggs substation. We will continue our restoration efforts until all members who can safely receive power have been restored. Barring any unforeseen problems, we expect to have everyone back on by mid-day tomorrow. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

We will continue to work diligently to restore power. We appreciate your patience as our crews continue to work through the weekend.
