Local Line Workers Assist in Florida Power Restoration 11 Sep 17

Two McLeod Co-op Power line workers are headed to Suwannee Valley Electric Cooperative in Florida to assist with power restoration.  

They headed out Sunday and were joined by linemen from Meeker, MN Valley – Jordan, Stearns, Todd-Wadena & Lake Region electric co-ops, all Minnesota Touchstone Energy cooperatives.

Current estimates indicate there are roughly 4 million outages as a result of the storm. Roughly 785,000 of these are electric co-op outages. 

Suwannee Valley Electric, where the MN crews are headed, currently has 22,000 of their 25,000 members out of power.
