Lots of DMEA customers without power today
An estimated 1,000 customers of the Delta-Montrose Electric Association are without power this morning, the result of widespread damage to the utility’s network because of yesterday’s storms.
Heavy, wet snow caused numerous problems around DMEA’s network, the utility said today, and snow began loading lines and snapping tree branches as early as yesterday evening. DMEA estimates that approximately 4,500 members from across their system were impacted by power interruptions.
Restoration efforts continued through the night and are still underway this morning, DMEA says.
DMEA members are asked report outages and downed lines by calling 1-877-687-3632. In the event you witness an emergency situation such as sparking or fires, the utility recommends calling 911 immediately.
