SRE Already Feeling Effects of Irma Sunday Afternoon

We are already experiencing scattered outages due to gusts of wind snapping healthy, green trees and tearing down lines. Irma isn't even scheduled to arrive until tomorrow so we urge you to be prepared for possible extended outages. We have one additional crew in place and more crews on standby. Wind speeds of up to 70 mph are predicted for much of SRE's territory in addition to up to 6 inches of rain.

SRE Prepares for Hurricane Irma

Southern Rivers Energy is closely monitoring the path of Hurricane Irma and contingency plans are in place. Trucks and materials are stocked and our crews are ready to respond to outages. Rest assured we are prepared but we urge our members and the community as a whole to take this seriously and have a plan in place in the event that Irma causes extensive damage and widespread outages.
