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.

www.news-journal.com/general/substation-at-longview-eastman-plant-said-to-be-cause-of/article_0c6...

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.

TVEC is responding to several outages and power anomalies that are happening over a broad part of the TVEC service territory. We will update with additional information as soon as possible.

I'm wondering how, if this power outage is SWEPCO related, other power companies are also affected? I'm clear out past Gladewater, on Upshur Rural, and my power is also out. Can anybody tell me what's up with that? ... See MoreSee Less

Just pray for the safety of the people that work there. There is a problem there and we need to pray that they are all safe.

It was nice to meet and chat with you a little bit ago. Thank you for updates!

Thank You!

Thank you

Thank u so much

Thank you bob

Thank you Bob, KLTV always keeps us informed.

Thank you for for the “correct” information!

Thank you! I’m surprised Eastman doesn’t have back-up generators.

TVEC and other regional power providers are responding to widespread power blinks this afternoon. The problem appears to be on the transmission grid that serves a large area of East Texas. We are working with transmission providers and will update information regarding this situation as soon as possible.

Text from CCECA: CCECA has been required by our supplier to shed load in Southern Cherokee Cty due to circumstances beyond their control. Power will be restored as soon as we are allowed to do so.

Thanks

Thanks

So why are they turning on their sirens? You can hear them clearly over him speaking.

I'd be curious to know which power plant tripped given that ERCOT has an "all hands off" issued due to the high temperatures during peak hours

Thanks mustache man!!

Turn up ur ac when heat is extreme. TXu sent out notice last wk to turn up ac & turn off lights not in use. Hopefully it will be back up Soon for all.

If y’all would follow Swepco you would see that it happened at the substation over by Eastman. Not at Eastman. It is affecting the transmission lines that give us our power.

What's being buried off. I'm down wind??????

No power in Henderson County
