Thank you for your patience during this event. We will update later this week with additional information regarding the cause and response to this event, and how something outside our area created such a large problem for TVEC members.
Update 8 p.m. – TVEC has been cleared to begin restoring power to the areas affected by this outage situation, but we do not yet have restoration times for any specific areas. As lines are restored and we ensure that everything is stable, additional areas will be added.
TVEC and other regional power providers are responding to widespread power blinks this afternoon. The problem appears to be on the transmission grid that serves a large area of East Texas. We are working with transmission providers and will update information regarding this situation as soon as possible.
Updates will be made as edits to this post.
