AL power crews to help restoration efforts in FL

Irma knocks out power to more than 33000 in South Carolina

Scott Froemming, CEO, said the cooperative is working with the Minnesota Rural Electric Association on providing assistance.

Pedernales Electric Cooperative has joined the effort to restore power Florida residents after Hurricane Irma by sending almost two dozen employees to the state.

The Licking-based cooperative said six linemen will assist in clean up and restoration efforts.

Missouri's electric cooperatives have helped out with hurricane relief in the past. "Intercounty has a strong team and is grateful to be able to assist in the Hurricane Irma restoration efforts".

For the thousands of customers without power in SC in the wake of Irma, help is on the way.

They will join another 300 tree contractors who were already in Florida where they have begun the preliminary work of removing trees and debris ahead of the arrival of line crews.

More than 60 Lexington County customers served by Mid-Carolina Electric Cooperative were among those losing power, down from 640 earlier Monday. The Okefenoke Rural Electric Membership Corporation along the Florida-Georgia line reported that 95 percent of its electric system was knocked out by the storm.

Missouri took part in daily conference calls among electric cooperatives that were expected to need help and those that should be out of harm's way. The first hurricane they responded to was in 2004, when Hurricane Ivan hit the Gulf Coast. The state organization is coordinating the response by Minnesota cooperatives.
