Crews from Suwannee Valley Electric Cooperative (SVEC), Musgrove Construction and Bryant Tree Service continue to clear trees and make repairs to the electric system. Line crews from Minnesota and Mississippi cooperatives are expected to arrive in Live Oak later today.
We are doing our utmost to get everyone’s power back on by the end of the week, said SVEC CEO, Michael McWaters. “We should be able to get a lot more people on when we regain our full transmission service.”
Four Duke Energy and FP&L transmission lines that serve eight SVEC substations are out.
Anyone who relies on life-supporting medical equipment should go to a location that has power until power is restored to their residence.
