Advisory

UPDATE on Greenbrier Substation: AU is working on options to restore power while making repairs; damage likely from lightning

UPDATE on Greenbrier Substation: AU is working on options to restore power while making repairs.

"We are working on all options simultaneously in an effort to restore power to customers," Electric Department Manager Blair Davis said.

He said it appears lightning during either Saturday's severe weather or Sunday's winter storm struck and damaged a substation power transformer.

"Lightning was reported during the snow, so it could have happened either day," Davis said. "If it occured on Saturday, the damage likely became worse during this winter event, leading to outages overnight Sunday."

Approximately 3,500 customers around County Line Road and in the Swancott area remain without power. 

We will continue to provide updates through these Nixle alerts and on our social media pages.
