Member/Customers of the San Bernard Electric Cooperative in the Columbus, Ellinger and Frelsburg areas along highway 71 North and FM 109, can expect outages and rolling blackouts throughout the day. 

There has been a substation failure and repairs are being impeded by the inclement weather in Austin.  Members in these areas are asked to conserve electricity when possible and expect outages to continue until repairs are made.  Members on life support systems should seek shelter elsewhere until the repairs are made.
