HURRICANE NATE POWER RESTORATION EFFORTS COMPLETE
(SUMMERDALE, Ala.) – As of 5:30 p.m. today, Baldwin EMC has restored power to all members following the outages resulting from Hurricane Nate, which made landfall late Saturday night along the Mississippi coast.
“Our crews worked through much of the storm on Saturday getting lights back on to many members, while other outages continued to occur as the storm moved through Baldwin County. At the height of the storm, Baldwin EMC had more than 4,000 meters without power,” said Mark Ingram, co-op spokesperson. “Outages occurred all across our service area, and we appreciate our members’ patience while our dedicated employees worked extended hours to safely restore power.”
Following the storm, additional utility workers assisted Baldwin EMC crews to help bring the lights back on.
