Saturday, August 17, 2019

8 a.m.

Thunderstorms moving through the region this morning are interrupting service to Southwestern Electric members.

As of 8 a.m., 230 members were without power. Strong winds, heavy rain and lightning have left 165 Madison County members without power, while more than 60 members in Bond County are without service.

Southwestern Electric line crews have been dispatched to make repairs. 

Members are cautioned to avoid all downed and low-hanging lines, as they may be energized or become energized at any time.
