Spring snow storm causes problems for Clarke Electric members
An unexpected spring snow storm caused multiple outages throughout Clarke Electric’s eight county service territory.
Early on Friday, May 3, outage calls started flooding Clarke Electric’s call center. At 7:30 a.m. office personnel relieved the call-dispatching center and quickly realized the magnitude of the areas affected.
The weight of the heavy, wet snow caused electric poles, cross arms and wires to snap. County roads were difficult to get around on because of the slush and mud, delaying efforts to reach members. At the height of the storm, Clarke Electric had more than 2,400 members affected and approximately 30 poles broken.
