Outage Update Jan. 22, 9:30 a.m.
As we enter day eight since the ice storm started impacting our system, the crews have managed to reduce the number of meters without power from over 9,600 to a little over 3,000. Crews are making good progress on getting more of the main distribution lines up and running again, giving us the capability to start backfeeding some areas. The areas which are still looking at up to a week or more of being without power are north and south of Arnett, north of Shattuck, and the counties of Harper and Beaver. Small portions of these areas do have power, but we still have a significant amount of tap lines either on the ground or damaged.
