Welcome Rain Comes with Damaging Hail
Wednesday, May 15, 2013 • Posted May 16, 2013

Thursday’s storm brought over one and a half inches of rain, and unfortunately some damaging hail.

Friday morning Blanco residents found themselves without power. PEC reported that, “At about 4:30 a.m. power was interrupted to 1,000 members in Blanco. Crews patrolled the lines looking for damage and were able to restore power to all but 140 members, including Blanco High School, at 7:40 a.m.

“Those remaining members continued to experience intermittent interruptions while crews replaced equipment damaged during the storm. By 12:30 p.m. all members had service while PEC crews made repairs to further increase system reliability.”

Power comes and goes, but the lasting effects of nearly golf ball sized hail will not be quickly repaired.
