What is Power Outage?

Power outage (also called a power cut, a power blackout, power failure or a blackout) is a short-term or a long-term loss of the electric power to a particular area.

What Causes Power Outages?

Outage Safety Tips

  • Stay away from the downed power lines, park vehicles in protected areas.

  • Pack perishable foods into a cooler, keep refrigerator and freezer doors shut as much as possible.
