CEC line crews are on stand-by in preparation for a tropical disturbance in the Gulf which is expected to make landfall along the northern Gulf Coast on Saturday. Scattered power outages in the CEC service territory could occur depending on the storm’s track, so please be prepared. CEC crews will work to restore power as quickly and safely as possible.

CEC members can monitor power outages by visiting the Outage Viewer on the co-op’s website at In the event of widespread outages, updates will be posted on CEC’s facebook page.

To report outages, CEC members should call 800-239-1193 or use the free CEC app for mobile devices. The co-op will not process outage reports via social media.

CEC reminds people to always stay away from downed or sagging power lines. All downed power lines should be treated as if they are energized and potentially deadly. People seeing a downed power line should stay away from it and report it to CEC at 800-239-1193 or call 911.
