Power outages reported in some areas nearby. Anyone in Greenville/Hunt County impacted?Update 9:45 p.m.- To clarify news reporting, the outages today were the result of transmission grid conditions that originated outside of TVEC's service area. TVEC had almost 30,000 members affected, and power has been fully restored within our area. We cannot verify power for areas outside our service territory.
Below is a link to a Longview News-Journal story with some preliminary reporting on this widespread event.
Update 8:45 p.m. - All TVEC circuits affected by this outage have been restored at this time. If your power has not come back on, please report your outage at 800-967-9324.
Thank you for your patience during this event. We will update later this week with additional information regarding the cause and response to this event, and how something outside our area affected so many TVEC members.
Update 8 p.m. - TVEC has been cleared to begin restoring power to the areas affected by this outage situation, but we do not yet have restoration times for any specific areas. As lines are restored and we ensure that everything is stable, additional areas will be added.
Update 6 p.m. - Widespread transmission issues have resulted in outages for a large portion of the TVEC service area, along with more than 100,000 people in northeast Texas.
We do not have an time estimate for resolution of this problem, or when power may be restored. Please make provisions for persons who may be sensitive to heat or need continuous electricity for medical devices.
Update: 5:30 p.m. - The repeated power anomalies/blinks are affecting a large part of east Texas, and appear to come from the transmission grid serving the region. We do not yet have any information regarding the exact cause or expected time for resolution.
