Update: Sand Mountain Electric Co-Op Crews Still Working To Restore Power
TENNESSEE VALLEY, Ala. (WHNT) – Utilities crews worked late into the night Monday into Tuesday morning to restore power in the Madison County, Limestone County and Sand Mountain areas.
The Sand Mountain Electric Cooperative service area was hit hard on Monday afternoon by storms, hail and rapid high winds. Some power poles were blown down, bringing down power lines as well.
Sand Mountain Electric Co-op crews have fixed most of the outages, but are still repairing a few isolated outages as of Tuesday afternoon, according to spokesperson Diane Hale. She said crews are diligently working to get those restored.
Hale said anyone in the Sand Mountain Electric Co-op service area without power should contact the co-op to report the outage. The number is (256) 638-2153.
In Huntsville, all outages have been repaired. Crews were busy with outages in the Harvest/Monrovia area on Monday, but all power was restored by the evening, according to Huntsville Utilities spokesperson Bill Yell.
Athens Utilities crews also worked to restore power to approximately 300 customers in various parts of Limestone County. All power there is restored now, too.
