Hurricane Harvey Update: Monday, August 28, 10 a.m.



As of 10 a.m., Sam Houston EC has restored power to 16,044. Nearly 7,000 members are currently without power, primarily in Montgomery, Polk and San Jacinto Counties.

The ground is saturated and foliage is dense, resulting in trees falling on lines and causing many outages.

Some areas of our service territory continue to be inaccessible due to flooded roads. We’re continuing to closely monitor these areas for conditions to improve. Although some areas may be inaccessible for several days. In the meantime, additional crews are arriving in our service territory to assist with restoration efforts.

Please remember to keep safety a top priority.
