Hurricane Florence

Co-op under normal operations, continues to monitor weather

A&N Electric Cooperative (ANEC) is under normal operations but will continue to monitor Hurricane Florence and local weather associated with the storm.

“We are very fortunate the storm’s path eventually took a more southern approach than initially anticipated,” said ANEC President and CEO Butch Williamson. “It looks like we will be spared from any severe impacts associated with this hurricane.”

The storm’s eye made landfall near Wilmington, North Carolina early Friday morning causing wide-spread power outages along the state’s coast and inland.

Co-op Prepared, Continues to Monitor Florence

A&N Electric Cooperative (ANEC) continues to monitor Hurricane Florence and is preparing for any severe weather associated with the storm.

While the center of Hurricane Florence is projected to make landfall near the North Carolina, South Carolina boarder, the effects of this massive storm will be felt locally.

The local area is still expected to receive some tropical storm force winds and moderate tidal flooding.

ANEC Prepares for Hurricane Florence

Currently the projected path of the hurricane predicts it will make landfall on the East Coast in North Carolina, with the effects of the storm extending into our area. At this time, forecasters are calling for tropical storm force winds and significant flooding to affect our service area.

The cooperative will continue to monitor the storm’s movement and will be prepared to react to any changes in its projected path.
