TORNADO DAMAGE UPDATE

With a few isolated exceptions, power has been restored to most Southern Power District customers affected by tornadoes on June 17th.  However, crews will be working today to repair damages to poles in Hamilton County, amounting in all to over two miles of distribution and subtransmission line. 

Due to downed power lines and poles, Southern Power District recommends avoiding areas affected by tornadoes.  Please remember that downed power lines may be energized, and should be reported to Southern Power District.
