  • Crews continue to restore power from OG&E's second largest storm in history
  • Power has been restored for more than 120,000 customers
  • As of 7:00 p.m., 260,000 customers are without power
  • We're mobilizing resources from across the country, as available, and have more than 2,500 restoration personnel at work
  • With the number of severe weather events this year and a hurricane approaching the Gulf Coast, off-system personnel, as well as materials, are in high demand
  • We'll continue to restore power every hour and our initial estimate for full restoration extends into next week
    • This estimate could change as we assess the full extent of damage
  • 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, call 800-522-6870 or emailcustcaredept@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 home 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.
