OUTAGE UPDATE - April 25, 2019
As of 8 AM, we have approximately 1,600 outages. Over 1,200 are within San Augustine County. The others are primarily in the Sabine County area around Rebel Ridge.
Around 11:20 PM a tornado hit the San Augustine area causing massive damage. For the Deep East Texas Electric Cooperative system – the San Augustine substation received damage and we are recording many poles and lines down. This substation serves the City of San Augustine and members along portions of Hwy 21 West, 147 South and North, FM 1751 and FM 2213. Repairs to the substation has began and we hope to have it back up this evening. Areas with more extensive damage will take more time as crews must make repairs to the downed lines and poles.
Above all, DETEC encourages everyone to keep safety a priority. Should you encounter a downed line, consider it live and dangerous.
