HOEC started out the morning with more than 1800 members without power due to the severe storms that passed through the area. As of Wednesday afternoon we are down to approximately 100 members still without power, with crews continuing to work to get power restored to every member. The picture shows a downed power pole in the Birch Tree area that was caused by extreme winds.
If you see a downed power pole, please stay away from it and notify the cooperative immediately at 417-256-2131 or 1-888-HOE-POWER. We appreciate your continued patience as crews work to safely restore power.
