Hurricane Harvey Update: Sunday, September 3, 10:30 a.m.

Repairs have been completed on the Entergy transmission line that was damaged by a tree that fell last night around 2:30 a.m. Power has been restored to the Fred/Spurger/Silsbee areas. 

The past week has been a trying time for all East Texans. From those of us whose job it is to provide electricity to East Texas, we sincerely thank you for your patience and encouraging words. You have helped us to keep going when conditions were very challenging.

To our Co-op friends in Fred, Spurger, and north Hardin County, we know your situation was frustrating with multiple outages, each one caused by a different issue. We are reviewing all the circumstances that affected you over the week. Even though some were not within our control, we are evaluating courses of action to improve your service long term.

Again, thank you. The sun is shining, the lights are on, and today will be a good day.  #CoopStrong
