If you reside in the communities of Bend, Beehouse, Chappel, Evant, Liberty, Lometa, Nix, North Ohio, Pearl, Purmela, or Star, you may experience extended outages lasting many hours. During these periods of time, your power may come on for as little as 10 minutes or less. Your electricity is served by the Lometa & Evant substations. These substations are not owned or operated by HCEC, and we have no control over the outages or operations of these substations. If you reside in one of these communities, please be prepared for current conditions to continue until Friday, once the weather is a little warmer.
