Hurricane Florence

An important message from our CEO (1)

Article was added on Wednesday, September 12, 2018

Ladies and gentlemen,

As you have no doubt seen by now, the current forecast track for Hurricane Florence is both extremely unusual and extremely unfortunate for citizens of our region.  What troubles me the most is the fact that - if this forecast remains valid - this system will slow down, turn, and maintain hazardous conditions in our area well into the weekend.

We already have hundreds of linemen committed to SEC's system from as far away as Missouri that will begin making their way toward us starting tomorrow (Thursday).  These men will supplement our own force of linemen, electrical construction contractors, and right-of-way clearing contractors. 

However, none of these crews can begin the restoration process until the danger passes.  Unfortunately, this danger could last a matter of days - not hours.  I need all of you to consider emergency shelters if an extended power outage could be considered life threatening to you or your loved ones.

Rest assured, Santee Electric Cooperative will place 100% of its focus on power restoration until every service is energized.  Until then, I ask you to join me in praying for all of the lives in the path of Hurricane Florence and for the strength and safety of all of those tasked with returning our lives to normal.  Thank you.

Rob Ardis
