“The difficulty with this repair has been the trees down, the damage and the replacement of that outdoors plant the poles and wires and the bodies to do that,” stated Hanemann. “It requires time.”

Hanemann said they have teams from Canada, Missouri and Texas helping with restoration efforts. But some customers who have actually been without power and a/c given that Tuesday stated they require extra help.
