Disclaimer: During large outages or severe weather conditions the data available may be limited, delayed, or not totally accurate. Outage data is provided without any guarantee or warranty of any kind, expressed or implied.
This map indicates areas of current planned and unplanned outages and the estimated time of restoration.  Please be aware that field crews provide the estimated restoration time and/or dispatchers based upon what is known about the situation.  Our workers strive to restore power to your home as quickly and as safely as possible but occasionally crews encounter unforeseen circumstances when working on repairs.  Therefore, sometimes power may be restored sooner or later than the estimated time noted in the map. 

The map is refreshed continually, but it usually takes a few minutes for an outage that just occurred to appear on the map.  If you have been out of power for more than ten minutes and it is not appearing on the map, please call one of the numbers at the top of the page or log into My Energy Account and use our online form to report an outage.  And remember, always treat a downed or low-hanging line as live.
