A statement Monday afternoon from Paulding-Putnam Electric Cooperative CEO Goerge Carter:
"We just got transmission service to Fort Brown, Continental and Roselm substations. Each of these will then have between 50% and 75% of the members back in service. AEP has informed us that Kalida should be repaired later this afternoon. Right now we have restored most service to Cecil area; Antwerp area; and virtually all of our Indiana territory.
"We are waiting for transmission service to the following areas: Latty, Convoy, Van Wert, Columbus Grove, Miller City and Ottoville. We are still looking at several days before service will be restored. Currently, we are estimating about 50% of the members are back in service.
"We have all employees working and have several line crews from Michigan as well as a crew from Northwestern Electric Cooperative in Bryan."
Carter estimated PPEC will make an update available sometime Tuesday morning as they were making some progress Monday.
