Pella Cooperative Electric Customers Lose Power

Posted: Thursday, January 21st, 2010 at 8:05 am

Power outages affected approximately 500 Pella Cooperative Electric customers in the overnight hours last night.  That’s according to Jean Van Wyk, Communications Coordinator at Pella Cooperative Electric.  She says that the number of customers still without power was around 120 at 8:00 a.m. this morning, but may it take a while for repair crews to restore power. 

With large amounts of ice still covering trees and power lines, more outages are possible, and area residents are reminded to always consider a downed power line to be live and to contact their local electric utility provider to report any downed power lines.
