Our crews continue to deal with icy conditions, which make road conditions increasingly hazardous. News reports noted many multiple-vehicle collisions throughout the state. Please postpone driving if possible and remember to move over and slow down when approaching a utility vehicle pulled over to the side of the road.
We are working to restore power as quickly as safely possible. Our crews will continue our restoration efforts until power is restored to all homes and businesses that can take power.

- All power lines should be considered energized and dangerous. Please report downed power lines by calling 1-866-223-8508.
- If you use a portable generator, do not plug the generator into your circuit box. Portable generators "back-feed" electricity up the line and risk the lives of repair workers and the public. Plug appliances directly into the generator. Also, always follow the manufacturer's instructions. Make sure backup generators are located outside the home and away from open windows in order to prevent the possibility of carbon monoxide poisoning.
- If you do lose power, please unplug or turn off your heating system, washers, dryers and other major appliances and electronic equipment like televisions and computers. Turn them on one at a time over a 15-20 minute period when power is restored.
