Posted on Wednesday, October 17, 2018 at 12:14 pm

SVEC lineman headed to Georgia on October 10, to aid Mitchell EMC in storm recovery. Working in Camilla, Georgia, SVEC linemen, working 16-18 hours a day, changed out eight 3-phase poles on Thursday, a day after the hurricane passed through the area. By Monday, power had been restored to 16,000 Mitchell EMC members out of the 23,000 members without power after Michael hit the area. Pictured are SVEC linemen before heading to Georgia last Wednesday, with SVEC President Mike Partin.
