Laurens Electric Cooperative actively monitoring Hurricane Florence

Laurens Electric Cooperative is actively monitoring Hurricane Florence. As of Monday, most storm prediction models show South Carolina as being in the cone of uncertainty.

However, as with Hurricane Irma this time last year, even if Florence does not make a direct hit on our state, heavy rainfall and high wind can cause outages.

As the storm’s path becomes clearer, LEC will make preparations for potential outages. Employees are currently checking inventory to make sure there is plenty of equipment on hand. Other plans, such as acquiring additional crews, won’t happen until officials are more certain of the storm’s threat to LEC’s service territory.

If the co-op determines Florence poses no threat to its service area but impacts other regions, LEC may send crews to other electric cooperatives along the SC coast to help with restoration.

Much of storm preparation work is done throughout the year by aggressively keeping the co-op’s rights-of-way clear of potential hazards such as tree limbs.

Co-op staff, line crews and dispatchers are on-call 24 hours a day in case of outages.

To report outages, call 1-866-9RESTORE.
