2/18 2:30 p.m. - Outage Update

Jackson EMC has restored power to 5,867 customers since our 8 a.m. report today. We currently have 23,875 customers still out of power. Our personnel, assisted by contractor crews and crews from other electric cooperatives, are working to clear these outages. We still have broken power poles to replace, and increased winds can hamper restoration efforts.

We anticipate we will be able to restore the majority of Jackson EMC customers’ power by the end of the day, but are anticipating that we may have a few thousand more difficult outages scattered throughout our service area to clear tomorrow.

We will continue to provide updates throughout the day until the last outages are cleared.
