OG&E Oct. 26 Ice storm update (as of 10/28 at 8:00 a.m.)

 

  • More than 2,000 line crew members, tree trimmers and assessors are working restoration
  • Crews have restored power for more than 100,000 customers
  • As of 8 a.m., 253,000 customers are without power
  • As we continue to restore power, outage numbers may increase with today's precipitation and as ice melts
  • Once the system has completely passed, we can complete damage assessment and have a clearer picture of how long restoration will take
  • As we clear tree limbs that are in or interfering with power lines, vegetation crews will take tree and brush debris from the customer's yard to the curb but will not remove this debris. The disposal of debris due to storms is the customer's responsibility.
  • Crews are following COVID-19 preventative measures, including social distancing as they restore power
  • Customer Safety Tips:
    • Be safe and stay away from downed power lines. To report a downed line, email custcaredept@oge.com with account info and location of downed line (if line is not at customer’s address)
    • Please do not approach crews and utility vehicles in your neighborhood. Doing so could jeopardize your safety and will only delay the restoration process.
    • Safety precautions should be followed when using a portable generator.
    • Check your homes to be sure it’s able to take power.
    • For your protection, do not post personal information such as addresses, account numbers, phone numbers, etc. on OGE social media channels.
