Crews working scattered outages as Hurricane Dorian approaches
Carteret-Craven Electric Cooperative (CCEC) line crews, with help from Rutherford EMC crews, worked mostly scattered outages Thursday afternoon and evening and will continue to work until conditions worsen with the approach of Hurricane Dorian.
“We have rules in place that prevent our crews from working in high winds, and we will just wait out the storm like everyone else until it passes,” said CCEC Communications Director Lisa Galizia “We will assess damages after the storm and get to work to get the power back on as quickly and safely as possible.”
If you see a fallen power line, stay away and call us as soon as possible. Otherwise, you can monitor outages on our outage map from a Wi-Fi connected smartphone or tablet. Outages are reported to us automatically by our metering system and substation monitoring system.
If lights come on around you and yours don't, then call 252.247.3107. If the phone is busy, please be patient. We have people answering all our phone lines around the clock.
CCEC Customer Service Dispatcher Megan Kay and CSR-Dispatch Team Leader Sharon Smith keep their eyes on our crews in the field and the approaching Hurricane Dorian.
