We at Lynches River Electric Cooperative take pride in the service we provide. We wish the power could stay on all the time. But that is not always possible. Often the power goes out during a storm.
In most cases, we can restore power in a short amount of time. Once in a while, however, there is an ice storm, tornado, tropical storm, or hurricane that comes through our area and creates huge amounts of damage. In these cases, it may take us a lot longer to restore power. It’s a good idea for you to keep some emergency items on hand, especially during hurricane season.
In a power emergency, you’ll want to report outages to us as quickly as possible. Our automated Outage System Number is 843-675-5732 (LREC) or 866-675-5732 (LREC).
