Storm Update 1:30pm

● MLGW currently has restored power to about 34,000 of 45,000 affected customers.

● MLGW is estimating that final restoration will be completed by late Friday evening, provided that weather conditions do not create additional outages and issues.

● About 120 MLGW crews are currently in the field working to restore power.

● A total of 19 outside crews are expected to arrive by this evening and will begin work tomorrow.

● MLGW's Customer Care Center will be open to take calls overnight tonight.

● Customers can call 544-6500 to report an outage and 528-4465 to report emergencies such as downed power lines.

● Customers still without power are asked to leave their back gates accessible for MLGW employees if their electric lines are in the back yard.

● Some customers may have damage to their weatherheads. If it is damaged, a customer must have it repaired by a licensed electrician and inspected by Code Enforcement before MLGW can restore your power. An example of a weatherhead can be found here.
