Howell - Oregon Coop outages drop to 880

Officials at Howell - Oregon Electric Cooperative report about 880 members had no power on Monday afternoon due to the severe weather and unprecedented amounts of rainfall last weekend.

When the outages began, the coop had about 2,600 outages. Howell-Oregon coop serves all of Howell and Oregon counties, the eastern parts of Ozark and Douglas counties, part of southern Texas County; and the southern half of Shannon County.

Progress has been steady but slow. The high water makes restoration of power difficult for crews. At least four bridges in Howell - Oregon's service area are washed away, and many more bridges and roads are covered with water.

Crews can’t get to several areas to make the repairs. The waters have to recede before they can reach those areas. That's why it could be at least Tuesday or Wednesday before crews make it to many areas.

Other electric cooperatives from across the state sent crews to the area on Monday to assist Howell - Oregon crews with restoration of power.

Anyone who sees a downed power line should stay away from it and report it to the cooperative immediately.

If you need to report an outage, call (417) 256-2131 or 1-888-HOE-POWER. You can also report an outage on the cooperative website at www.hoecoop.org.
