Our local crews responded immediately, but inclement weather continued to plague certain parts of the state overnight, slowing the pace of repairs. Additional crews are traveling to the hardest hit counties to provide further assistance. Estimated times for restoration in those areas will be shared once we've had the opportunity to fully assess the damage. Thank you for your patience. We will continue to provide updates as we progress."
