Blue Ridge Energy line crews worked over the weekend, including late into Sunday night, to restore power to members affected by flooding and mudslides.

The cooperative reports that, all told, some 3000 members were without power during the weekend, with less than 30 still without power early Monday afternoon.

The heavy rain and flooding caused wash-outs that brought down trees on power lines, causing damage to the electric system across the service area.

Members can report outages by calling 1-800-448-2383 or by using the Blue Ridge Energy mobile app.
