LP&L still working to restore power to 200 customers

Provided by LP&L

LUBBOCK – At 6:35 pm this evening, winds in excess of 60 mph knocked down five electric poles in the vicinity of 92nd Street and Slide Road. These poles were located in the South Plains Electric Cooperative service territory; however they fed dual service between LP&L and South Plains Electric Cooperative customers.

The damage from high winds accompanying today's storm initially interrupted electric service for approximately 1,500 LP&L customers. All but 200 of these customers were able to be restored within an hour of service interruption when LP&L crews fixed the circuit which feeds electricity to these customers' homes.

LP&L crews are working with South Plains Electric Cooperative on the progress of re-installing the downed poles and therefore restoring power to the approximately 200 customers still experiencing service interruption. Updates on the status of these 200 customers will be provided as soon as possible.

LP&L, along with our partners at South Plains Electric Cooperative, urge all customers regardless of the status of their electricity to exercise extreme caution around power lines. Good common sense and respect for the potential danger posed by this equipment of vital importance. LP&L will always work hard to maintain the safety of our customers and our employees in the field.
