Been without electricity since Monday 3 am. When are we getting it back? Still waiting. It’s cold up in this house. We have a lot of elderly in our neighborhood. Please do something.

Power out for hours, website down- for hours, unable to report outage online - site down/inactive. Neighbors told power would be back on by 1800 - inaccurate information. Now hearing on local news it will be at least Thursday. Incompetence - will not be renewing contract.
