Power restored for all LP&L customers

Provided by LP&L

Power has been restored for all customers experiencing interruption of service due to the storm event Monday night. LP&L customers were fully restored by 12:45 a.m. Tuesday, May 27.

At 6:35 p.m. Monday evening, winds in excess of 60 mph knocked down five electric poles in the vicinity of 92nd Street and Slide Road. These poles belonging to South Plains Electric Cooperative feed duel service between LP&L and South Plains Electric Cooperative customers. The damage from high winds accompanying Monday night'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 worked with South Plains Electric Cooperative on the progress of re-installing the downed poles in order to restore power to the approximately 200 customers who experienced lingering service interruption. Crews from both utilities worked diligently into the night in order to bring all customers back to full service.

LP&L thanks our partners at South Plains Electric Cooperative for their work during the storms and continues to 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 is of vital importance. LP&L will always work hard to maintain the safety of our customers and our employees in the field.

If any customer is experiencing lingering effects from Monday night's storm, please contact LP&L at (806) 775-2555.
