Whitfield Bryson LLP (WB) has filed one of the first Class Action complaints in the Eastern District of North Carolina arising from the Bonner Bridge power outage. The massive loss of power was caused by a construction mishap that severed the area’s main power lines on July 27, 2017. WB represents businesses property owners in Hatteras and Ocracoke.

WB expects this outage to severely impact home and business owners who rely on the Outer Banks tourism season for income.

More information is expected to be released as it becomes available.


On the morning of Thursday, July 27, a power outage for the entirety of Hatteras and Ocracoke Island occurred when PCL Construction, the company, building the new Bonner Bridge, accidentally drove a steel casing into two transmission lines of Cape Hatteras Electric Cooperative’s (CHEC) underground transmission cables on the south side of Oregon Inlet.

CHEC is reporting an expected timeline for a complete repair ranges from one to two weeks. CHEC is concurrently working to expand the temporary generation service on Hatteras Island in order to accommodate a staged re-entry of visitors.
