The following information was released from Sioux Valley Energy this morning:
Sioux Valley Energy currently has approximately 3,000 members without power. There are several hundred poles down with entire sections of line in some areas as conditions continue to deteriorate in the southeast region of SVE's territory.
The heavy damage is primarily south of Dell Rapids to the north end of Sioux Falls and extends out east beyond Luverne, Minn. It continues to rain and freeze as SVE works to put up line.
Sioux Valley Energy is bringing in additional lineworkers from other electric co-ops and as well as extra equipment. Please follow Sioux Valley Energy on facebook and twitter for the latest. The online SVE outage map can be found at https://ebill.siouxvalleyenergy.com/oms/outageMap.
