“Crews are working around the clock to repair the extensive damage to the electric system caused by this devastating tropical storm. We have identified about 200 miles of downed wire to be repaired.

“We know how urgently those still out need power back – especially right now given the pandemic and hot summer weather. We will not rest until this restoration is complete.”
