My power went out every 5 minutes and stayed out for 5 minutes all night, until 6am then it went out completely and is still off.
7 and 9
Woke up at 5:15 and it thought, “who turned the heat down”. Went to then on light—-no power. Literally a minute later the power came back, lights, heat, etc came on. I went downstairs to check a light timer. Actual time was 5:20. Rotary dial timer, which had been set to the correct time, was showing shortly before 2am. A little over 3 hours....?

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?


  • Severe weather (high winds, lightning, winter storms, heat waves, rain or flooding can cause damage to power lines or equipment);
  • Other damage to electric transmission lines (vehicle accidents, trees, and animals can cause damage to power lines or equipment);
  • Repairing, maintenance or upgrades on power lines and equipment.

Outage Safety Tips


  • Stay away from the downed power lines, park vehicles in protected areas.
  • Unplug appliances and electronics, limit cell phone use to conserve battery life.
  • Use portable generators outdoors only, well away from open windows and doors.
  • Pack perishable foods into a cooler, keep refrigerator and freezer doors shut as much as possible.
