CUC urges customers to make preparations for potential disruption of electricity service, which may result from the approaching Hurricane Dean if the storm maintains its present track and approaches our area early Monday morning.
Disruption of service may result in isolated areas from high winds or island-wide due to an orderly system-wide shutdown. Loss of electrical service in some areas or an island-wide shutdown could become necessary in the interest of public safety. In both cases power may not be restored for an extended period of time, as CUC linemen will not be able to conduct repairs until winds have subsided to a safe level.
CUC will continue to monitor the storm’s progress and will endeavour to advise customers in advance of any potential system-wide shutdown.
Customers are advised to call CUC’s Fault Reporting Hotline at 945-1CUC (1282) to report outages or 911 to report downed power lines if either has occurred before the Company announces loss of service in an area or island-wide.
