Snow and Ice Cause Area Outages
Not all of the great linemen were warming up on the field in Tampa for the Super Bowl on Sunday. Wet snow fell in the Upper Cumberland overnight Saturday, causing tree limbs to break and power lines to fall under the weight. UCEMC members in Buck Mountain, Silver Point, Rocky Point, Hawkins Crawford, and Shipley School Road were among the areas experiencing outages of 4 hours or more. UCEMC linemen worked in the snow, ice, and fog to replace the lines and restore power to members in plenty of time to warm up their homes and enjoy Sunday activities. UCEMC reminds members that after a storm, stay far away from downed power lines and call us immediately to report the location of your outage. UCEMC would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding as we continue to provide you with safe, reliable, power even in a storm like this.
