Update 9:45 p.m.- To clarify news reporting, the outages today were the result of transmission grid conditions that originated outside of TVEC's service area. TVEC had almost 30,000 members affected, and power has been fully restored within our area. We cannot verify power for areas outside our service territory.
Below is a link to a Longview News-Journal story with some preliminary reporting on this widespread event.
