WREC restoration efforts completed after Hurricane Ian

Withlacoochee River Electric Cooperative has fully restored all Members power as of Friday evening. Hurricane Ian caused 20,926 outages at the height of the storm as it affected our area on Wednesday and Thursday of last week (9/28 and 9/29).   All WREC’s service area was affected with tropical storm force winds and heavy off and on rain. The worst of Ian’s effects were felt further south and east of our area.

WREC’s linemen worked around the clock along with linemen from Pike Electric and had all Members power restored within 48 hours. Continue to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram for future information. You can always report any future outages you may have on WREC’s SmartHub app or our website Outage Center / Report an Outage. You can also follow active outages on our outage map on our website at Outage Center / Outage Map.

A big thank you to all of our linemen and staff for an amazing job well done during such trying times. Thank you also to our Members affected for their patience as we worked as quickly but safely to get your power back on. We appreciate all of you!
