DEC working to restore power in Sussex

October 30, 2012

Delaware Electric Cooperative crews are working to restore power to 788 members across Kent and Sussex counties. DEC linemen have been joined by utility contractors today as they restore power to DEC members. About 200 of the affected homes are experiencing flooding and it may be days before bucket trucks are able to safely reach those locations. Crews will be working through the night and expect to restore power to all other members at some point tomorrow. DEC crews have been working 16 hour shifts and that schedule will continue until all members have their lights turned back on. To report an outage, call 855-332-9090.  Live outage information can be found on DEC's website at
