Crews continue to work around the clock to safely restore power; fewer than 8,000 outages remain

Nearly 80% of outages restored from Wednesday storms

Lineworkers are like celebrities when they roll in to restore power after a storm. In neighborhoods or on a lonely country road, there’s always someone who wants to say thanks, shake hands, offer a meal or ask for help. Hurricane Ida was no different.
