66 hrs now of no power. But across the street is lit up like a Christmas tree. Not happy

I have been without power for 14 hours. This is ridiculous

Face Palm, be a little respectful to Marie Valenzuela. The electric companies have the ability to suddenly turn the power off then why in the world would they not be able to turn it off? Unless powerlines had been knocked down. Mainly, Texas is doing to conserve energy. Texas definitely uses more energy in the summer heat and we don't get power turned off all night and day.

Marie, they KNOW where the power is out. You don't need to notify them. Chill the fuck out. They have intentionally shut off power to 90% of the hour due to power generation issues. EVERYONE is out and Centerpoint is aware. You aren't a special snowflake that needs to personally notify. When they're ready to turn it back on then power will be back on to your entire area.

Face Palm, thank you for your insight I really appreciate it. However, I feel they should at least have the ability to allow us to report or outage. I have not been able to report it via phone nor via Internet. Utility Service should at least have a call center or a means to report outages real time!!
