Power Still Out for Thousands Across Warren, Frederick
Local electric cooperatives are still dealing with power outages across the region after yesterday’s (2/12/2019) ice storm.
The Rappahannock Electric Cooperative was forced to scale back its overnight crew operations last night due to extremely hazardous conditions. They were reporting around 1,300 outages as of 6:30 a.m. this morning, mostly in Warren County, but were able to bring that number down to just over 1,000 by late in the morning. Meanwhile, the Shenandoah Valley Electric Cooperative encountered similar problems, and were reporting somewhere around 6,600 outages at 4 a.m.; as of 10:30 a.m., that number was down to just over 6,100, concentrated mostly in Frederick County and northwestern Shenandoah County. The SVEC said yesterday that “When lines went up, trees would knock them back down,” but that “crews continue to work as quickly and safely as possible to get member-owners back on.”
