Pulled data from your own legally mandated service database Last 15 years, YOUR DATA, we lose power 94.1% of the time when anybody in this zip code loses power Statistically, that's extraordinarily unlikely How could one neighborhood be affected 16 out of every 17 times? I live 2 blocks from businesses with full power in 3 of 4 directions, and neighbors to the south of our side street have power Again. And again and again... There is a design problem and I'm sick of it Fix it

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.
