Preparing for the storm

Message from PPL

If you’ve watched the weather reports, you know that a winter storm is on its way. As much of our region braces for the possibility of rain, wintry precipitation, heavy winds, and plummeting temperatures, we want to assure you that we're prepared to respond to storm-related power outages.

We understand the timing of this storm is inconvenient and may interrupt your holiday plans. We’ve been monitoring the forecast and are storm ready. We have more than 2,000 employees from our own team and peer utilities prepared to support our restoration efforts. We'll work as safely and quickly as possible to assess damage and restore power to all customers who are impacted.

While we’ve prepared for possible outages, we want you to be prepared too:

  • Charge your cell phones, portable chargers, and other electronic devices so they’re ready to use in case of an emergency.

  • Prepare or update your emergency kit with food, water, medication, and pet supplies.

  • Double check your flashlights for batteries.

  • If you have a portable generator, test it to make sure it’s working, but don’t operate in an enclosed area, like a garage, where carbon monoxide fumes could accumulate.

Assume any downed power line is energized. Stay clear by at least 100 feet and keep kids and pets away. If you see a downed power line, report it immediately by calling 1-800-342-5775.
