HOUSTON COUNTY – As of Sunday evening, April 14, Houston County Electric Cooperative (HCEC) has approximately 2,500 meters without power from the storm system on Saturday. Restoration efforts will continue through tomorrow.
Most of the damage is located in Berea, Kennard, Tadmor, Wexhes and Ratcliff.
Members in those areas will likely be without power until Monday. If you or anyone you may know has a medical condition that relies on electricity, we urge you to relocate where you can receive an alternate power source.
We are utilizing all of our resources to restore power to our consumers as quickly and safely as we possibly can. Please continue to watch our website and Facebook pages for updates throughout the day and night.
