​In the aftermath of Hurricane Florence, NRECA is closely monitoring the situation and supporting co-ops in North Carolina and South Carolina.

NRECA's communications and government relations departments are leading the effort, which is designed to provide resources to electric co-ops as they respond to the storm. During Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, NRECA supported affected co-ops by providing talking points, social media guidance, earned media outreach and more.

NRECA also coordinates with FEMA, DOE and other federal agencies during extreme weather events, providing situation updates to our federal partners on the co-op storm response.

If you have questions or would like support during the upcoming hurricane, please contact Stephen Bell (Stephen.Bell@nreca.coop, 571-205-7719) or Martha Duggan (Martha.Duggan@nreca.coop, 703-907-5848).
