WILDFIRE & OUTAGE UPDATE: Monitoring Conditions in Evacuation Zones
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 10, 2020
We continue to monitor conditions throughout our District, particularly in those areas that have been designated evacuation zones. This afternoon, our crews restored power to Hill Road in Marcola, which is currently in a Level 2 evacuation zone.
Please note that due to continued fire risk, we do not plan to energize any areas in a Level 3 evacuation zone unless specifically asked to do so by state authorities. To date, large sections of the Mohawk Valley and Marcola remain under a Level 3 and power will remain off, with limited exceptions, until further notice. We will work to restore power as quickly and safely as possible once conditions allow.
We understand how difficult this situation is for customers in these areas and appreciate your continued patience and understanding.
