Forecast & Preparation

Our Storm Restoration Team is closely watching high winds in targeted areas around the state. This weather could result in power outages, downed wires and other safety hazards.

We are fully mobilized, making preparations to quickly respond to any power outages.

High Winds May Lead to Power Outages

High winds can damage trees and utility poles, bring down power lines, and cause outages and unsafe conditions. Visit our Outage Center for safety information, or to report an outage. Sign up for outage alerts in the Preference Center.

Staying Safe in a Windstorm

Downed Wires Can Be Deadly

If you see a downed wire, please stay at least 25 feet away from it, and anything it is touching. Once you’re safe, call 9-1-1. Then call us at 800-477-5050.

Have Your Flashlights Ready and Available
