Kansas weather can be unpredictable from sunny and warm to windy and cold within an hour. When the prospect of a severe storm looms, the best way to cope is to be prepared before it strikes. Victory Electric has an active maintenance and right-of-way program to help minimize the damage wind, rain, limbs and trees cause on our system. However, depending on the strength of the storm, sometimes that is not enough.

Weather can create dangerous situations for all of us, including the Victory Electric line crews who are out working to get your power safely restored as quickly as possible. While we strive to provide reliable service at the lowest cost possible, there may still be unavoidable circumstances that knock out your electricity for short periods.


Outage Update June 10, at 8:25 a.m. Sunflower Electric reports that early this morning their crews restored service. "We greatly appreciate the unwavering dedication of our Sunflower crews and are truly thankful for the support from our Member crews." -Sunflower Electric

Victory Electric will continue to work to repair any remaining storm damages from the weekend and begin switching feeds back to normal. Possible blinks and brief outages could take place during this process especially in the Cimarron, Ingalls, and Montezuma areas. We appreciate your patience during this process and thank you for your support. If you are still without power please contact our office at 620-227-2139.

We are aware of an outage in the Bucklin area and crews are working to restore power as we speak.

OUTAGE UPDATE | Sunday, June 9 at 3:50 p.m. | We have one outage remaining. Due to the extensive storm damage, we anticipate restoration to the area will be completed late tomorrow. We understand the disruption this may cause, and we have mobilized several teams. It is our top priority to safely return service as quickly as possible.

OUTAGE UPDATE | Sunday, June 9 at 10:30 a.m. | Yesterday's intense storms caused damage to Sunflower's transmission infrastructure, impacting approximately 27 structures. Damage assessments began after the storms passed, and crews are working closely with our members to coordinate restoration efforts. We would like to extend our appreciation to the crews who worked diligently through the night and morning hours and will continue their efforts today.

June 9, 2024 Update: Sunflower Electric has experienced major damage to parts of their high-voltage transmission grid due to last night's storm. This affects our members in the areas of Pierceville and Ingalls. Until these structures are repaired power cannot be restored. Please make plans to be without power for an extended timeframe. All available Sunflower crews and contractors are working to repair the damage. Early estimates of restoration indicate the lines may not be functional until Tuesday, June 11.  Victory Electric is also assisting with restoration efforts. Victory asks that you conserve energy until repairs are made to minimize load on critical back-feed circuits. We will continue to provide updates as they become available.
