PRECorp line crews and contractors restored power to approximately 500 members who lost electricity during Friday’s powerful snowstorm that pounded northeastern Wyoming.
An area east of Highway 111 between Beulah and Sundance that had broken poles and crossarms was partially restored Monday, with full restoration anticipated by Tuesday evening. This will include the community of Beulah. More crews are working in rural areas around Hulett, Aladdin, Ranch A, and Colony. PRECorp cannot yet determine a time when power will be fully restored to these areas, which include approximately 250 members.
Successful residential restorations were reported at Mush Creek near Newcastle, Aladdin, and Hulett.
PRECorp is contacting members directly to inform them of the status of when power will be restored. If you experience a new outage, call 1-888-391-6220. There are scattered outages throughout the service territory that are being addressed. Even after restoration of power, repair and replacement work will continue for several weeks.
If you see a hazardous situation such as a downed power line, call 1-888-391-6220. Do not approach the scene. You can be electrocuted if you make contact with an energized line or anything it touches.
