EIEC progressing with restoration efforts ….

                                             Restoration efforts nearly complete

Eastern Illini Electric Cooperative line crews are nearing the end of the restoration process that began Sunday afternoon as high winds and tornadoes swept through east central Illinois.

In all, 5,497 accounts were without electricity at some point during the last two days, and over 100 electric poles were knocked down. The crews are now working to identify individual lines and poles that may still be damaged. Any Eastern Illini member/owners that are still without power are encouraged to call the co-op at 800-824-5102.

Dave Champion, Eastern Illini's President/CEO said, "We would like to thank all of our member/owners for their patience as we worked to restore power as quickly and safely as possible. We'd also like to thank the four Illinois electric cooperatives that sent workers and equipment to our area to aid in the restoration process. As usual, our employees showed great determination and professionalism as they worked around the clock to get the lights back on for our member/owners." Champion continued, "The devastation that these storms left behind is tragic. Our hearts and prayers go out to everyone that lost their homes and belongings." {submitted info}
