Six area linemen en route to Louisiana
Friday, August 31, 2012
Six Co-Mo Electric Cooperative linemen were sent to Louisiana on Thursday for restoration work in the wake of Hurricane Isaac.
Three supply-loaded trucks were sent to help bring power back to the nearly 56,000 members of Dixie Electric Membership Corporation, whose electricity was knocked out from torrential rains and hurricane-force winds this week.
Ken Johnson, Co-Mo’s CEO and general manager, assured Co-Mo members the cooperative will maintain sufficient staff at both of its offices to handle any issues that could happen here this weekend from the remnants of the hurricane.
