Power Outage Maps

General Outage Maps

ANN ARBOR, June 25, 2012: Power outage maps for those utility companies that provide it are listed here by state, alphabetically. As of June 25, 2012, 45 of 50 states have something here.

The list is known to be incomplete, but the list from Wikipedia (outage management system) is also incomplete. To be overly comprehensive, if there are screen captures that I can gather, I will; they will not be current when you look at them, but I will time and date stamp them as best I can.

Wherever possible, I’m also capturing service area or service territory maps, mobile device apps, high capacity transmission interconnection maps, media contact information, regulatory agencies, and regional coordinating bodies.

Power outage-related products
You might want to have an emergency sump pump and basement water sensor and alarm. Be aware of approaching weather with a weather alert radio and a hand crank emergency radio. Or spring for a 27 kilowatt whole house generator that runs on propane or natural gas.

 


 

WARNING!!!
DO NOT TOUCH DOWNED WIRES! If you don’t know who to call to report an emergency associated with a power outage, call 911 or your area’/regional emergency number.
