Severe thunderstorms swept through Northern Neck Electric Cooperative’s service territory yesterday evening causing scattered outages across NNEC’s service territory with the largest concentration of loss of power in Westmoreland County. Most of the outages were a result of the fallen trees on the power lines with some broken wires and five broken poles. NNEC linemen worked throughout the night to restore power after 1674 members were without power. This morning NNEC has one outage and linemen are responding to restore power as quickly as possible. If you are out of power, please call 1-866-NNEC OUT (866-663-2688). Stay away from any downed power line, tree on the line or anything touching a line. Notify NNEC of any downed power lines or trees on the line by calling 1-866-NNEC OUT (866-663-2688). View the outage map on-line from our web site at www.nnec.coop .
