Hundreds of PPL Electric Utilities workers continue to work around clock responding to widespread outages caused by damaging winds. As of 6 p.m. Tuesday (2/26), about 800 customers were without power.

It is expected that all customers who experienced outages on Sunday and Monday will have their power restored by 11 p.m. on Tuesday.

More than 97,000 customers have been restored since severe winds began causing power outages on Sunday.

About 300 workers from other states were brought in to assist with the restoration efforts..

Customers are urged to report outages at pplelectric.com/outage, by calling 1-800-DIAL-PPL, or by texting Text “Outage” to TXTPPL (898775).

Customers can personalize PPL Alerts to receive outage information by phone, email, text or all three.

We urge customers to stay safe:

  • Always stay away from any downed lines, keep kids and pets away from them and report fallen wires immediately by calling 1-800-DIAL-PPL.
  • Make sure your cell phones and other personal devices are fully charged.
  • If you must run a generator, make sure you run it outdoors in a well-ventilated area — never indoors or in a garage.
  • Use flashlights, not candles, to reduce fire risk.
