Irma knocks out power to more than 33000 in SC

Some crews from Iowa are already there and others are leaving today to be part of an estimated 17,000 utilities workers who are helping Florida turn the power back on after Hurricane Irma.

Despite thousands still experiencing power outages, Tallahassee electric crews did work overnight to restore power to more than 11,000 customers.

They headed out Sunday and were joined by linemen from Meeker, MN Valley - Jordan, Stearns, Todd-Wadena & Lake Region electric co-ops, all Minnesota Touchstone Energy cooperatives.

For the thousands of customers without power in SC in the wake of Irma, help is on the way. "Remaining crews at the co-op are more than capable of maintaining members' reliable service throughout Intercounty's territory during the absence of these six linemen", according to a statement late Monday by the cooperative.

When reached Monday morning, Froemming said the local cooperative was waiting for word on where help would be needed.

Relief crews are coordinated by the Association of Missouri Electric Cooperatives, the statewide service organization for the state's electric cooperatives. "Our system and members have been the recipients of assistance from other electric cooperatives and we are always glad to be able to help others when they need assistance".
