Update From Osceola Rural Electric

Date posted - April 12, 2013

Directly from Osceola Rural Electric:

General Manager Jeff TenNapel appreciates the member’s cooperation and understanding with the ongoing outages due to the ice storm. Currently we have five rural electric cooperatives (20 men and trucks) helping with the restoration. Restoration is slow due to damage system wide. OEC’s hope by Friday evening is that we will have 70% of our system on. Sunday we hope to have everyone on – or temporarily on, provided the weather cooperates.

    I have not seen a power company truck since the electric went off on Tuesday. My transformer and my power pole are laying in my windbreak. Five other poles on my mile are snapped off or completely down and 4 other poles on this mile are too bent to be any good. I don’t see Sunday as being feasible but I am using wood heat, a generator for minor needs such as this, and have water. I am extremely grateful to not need to use more of my supplies that I had set up for this type of emergency and very glad it did not happen in January.
