Medina EC and contractor crews continue to respond to locations. They have made significant progress since the supercell and accompanying tornado came through the area on the evening of Wednesday, April 28. At that time, more than 65% of members in Medina County were without power; less than 1% of members in Medina County remain without power at this time.
Medina County - 86 meters remain without power. We anticipate all these meters will be restored by this evening. These are mostly individual locations or groups of less than 5 meters or are hunting camps or water wells that are not occupied. All residences are priority and any repairs that can restore multiple meters at once will take priority over a single location. As we get into locations, we may find additional damage that we were not able to identify from the air. We have worked to contact members in areas where we cannot reach them because of standing water or saturated ground and where it may take longer to restore power.
Throughout this event, we have seen the people and communities impacted come together. Our members have been so understanding as our crews have worked to restore power. We recognize the inconvenience caused by any outage and know that being without power for extended amounts of time is extremely difficult. We appreciate all your kindness and we know there is a lot of cleanup work to be done in the coming weeks. Together, we will overcome this event.
We will post a summary in the next few weeks.
