"Plans are well under way by North Arkansas Electric Cooperative for what appears to be a major ice event from tonight into tomorrow. Our management team has been on full alert since yesterday morning, and planning is under way at this moment to respond to whatever happens over the next two days.
Should the worst case scenario (immediate worst case by the NWS) play out, we will have extended outages that will exceed a few days. It appears we are not talking about the same severity of the 2009 storm, but I will say some of the weather models are close to that. Predictions now are for .25 to .75 inches of ice over our entire service territory. That is not good news. But keep in mind, weather can and will change. Let's hope for the best as we plan for the worst."
Please stay abreast of the weather conditions.
