AEP Texas Prepares for Tropical Storm Alberto

June 19, 2024

Tropical Storm Alberto continues to move through the Gulf of Mexico and is predicted to bring significant rainfall south Texas. A tropical storm warning is in effect for the Texas Gulf Coast until Thursday, June 20. AEP Texas is lining up crews, equipment, and other resources in anticipation of heavy rainfall and the possibility of high winds.

As this potential tropical storm moves through the Gulf of Mexico, AEP Texas urges all customers to remember the following safety guidelines:

  • Consider any downed power line energized and dangerous. Do not touch anything in contact with the line, such as trees, fences, or puddles of water. Because of the likelihood that the storm may impact power lines, customers are asked to keep their children and pets inside during and after the storm. Also, stay at least ten feet away from any downed power line.
  • Customers on life support systems or other medical equipment that relies on electricity are reminded to have a backup plan for situations where prolonged outages may occur.
  • If you plan to use a portable generator, always follow the manufacturer's instructions. Most, if not all, require that backup generators be located outside the home and away from open windows to prevent the possibility of carbon monoxide poisoning.

AEP Texas will issue updates as more information becomes available. Residents can track progress on the restoration effort by visiting the outage area at www.aeptexas.com. There is a real-time map featuring the most current available information. Customers can sign up for outage alerts to receive updates on outages and follow us on social media
