Responding to Florence - Carolina Country
November 2018

Hurricane Florence tore across our service area Friday, September 14, and brought challenges and destruction unlike Southeastern NC has seen in decades.

With extensive flooding and damaging winds, the storm knocked out power to nearly 83,000 Brunswick Electric members by Friday evening.

Saturday morning, our crews were ready to roll once the worst winds had subsided; and within days, we had restored power to 99% of our members.

Brunswick Electric employees are well-trained, dedicated, and willing to go the extra mile to serve you.
