Last update 6:00 p.m. on April 13, 2020
Hundreds of PPL Electric Utilities workers are working around the clock to respond to widespread outages caused by damaging winds and falling trees.
As of 5:00 p.m. Monday, April 13, about 56,000 customers had their power restored and 9,000 were without power. The vast majority of customers are expected to be restored by 7 a.m. tomorrow morning (4/14). Most affected customers will have their power back before 7 a.m. tomorrow. Any new outages we get this evening will be restored by noon tomorrow. You can visit pplelectric.com/outage to get specific times for your area.
We know this is a difficult time. The coronavirus pandemic means you’re spending more time at home and you’re more dependent on electricity than ever. If you’ve lost power during this storm, know that our focus, as always, is to restore your power as safely and quickly as possible.
We are prioritizing medical facilities and similar life-sustaining operations for restoration. We then focus on repairs that will get the largest numbers of customers back in service as quickly as possible. Then we restore power to smaller neighborhoods and individual homes and businesses. To learn more about our priorities for restoring power, please visit: https://www.pplelectric.com/outages/priorities-for-restoring-power.aspx.
Please continue to stay safe. Remember to respect social distancing by staying at least 10 feet away from any PPL worker and stay away from any downed wires. Always assume those lines are energized. You can report downed wired by calling 1-800-DIAL-PPL.
Together, we’ll continue to power through.
