* Note regarding outage map:

Due to lack of cell service in some parts of our service area, some outages with crews assigned (helmets on top of the colored dot/polygon) do not provide an estimated time of restoration. Instead, they say "assessing damage". Please note that crews are there working and will provide an ETR when cell service is available.

6 a.m. update 12/10/18

Most of the outages are tree related. In Mt. Airy, a tree fell on a section of line crossing the railroad tracks and a train caught the line. Two poles were broken and three others were damaged. Those poles had to be replaced and railroad personnel onsite before the new line could cross the tracks. Power was restored in the affected area overnight.
