Expired: Crews working to restore outages caused by storms

PPL Electric Utilities crews are working to make repairs for customers who are without power due to the storms that occurred Saturday.

As of 9:00 a.m. Sunday (6/23), approximately 6,400 of our 1.5 million customers were without power.

Since the storms began Saturday (6/22), we have restored power to more than 33,000 customers.

Current predictions for pop-up storms Sunday may result in additional outages. Remember, if you encounter a downed wire at any time, assume it’s energized, stay away and report it immediately.

If you lose power, report the outage online at or text “Outage” to TXTPPL (898775).

Staying cool in the heat:

We understand it’s never easy to be without power, especially during times of high heat. We urge our customers to stay safe in extreme heat situations. Seek out cool places — shopping malls, libraries or public cooling centers — to avoid the heat. Also, drink plenty of fluids, stay informed, and check on elderly family members or neighbors.

Stay safe:

Please stay safe and keep the following safety tips in mind:

  • If you encounter a downed wire at any time, assume it’s energized and stay away.
  • Candles can start fires. If you lose power, use flashlights instead.
  • If you lose power and are using a portable generator, never operate the generator in an enclosed area, like a garage, where deadly carbon monoxide fumes could accumulate.
  • We encourage customers who have medical conditions requiring electricity to make arrangements in case of an outage.
  • If you lose power, turn off any appliances that were on when the power went off.
  • For your safety and ours, please keep a safe distance from our crews.
