Power outage maps for all 50 states plus as many other countries as I can find

ANN ARBOR, February 11, 2014: Power outage maps for those utility companies that provide it are listed here by state, alphabetically. As of February 11, 2014, 45 of 50 states have something here.

The list is known to be incomplete, but the list from Wikipedia (outage management system) is also incomplete. To be overly comprehensive, if there are screen captures that I can gather, I will; they will not be current when you look at them, but I will time and date stamp them as best I can.

Wherever possible, I'm also capturing service area or service territory maps, mobile device apps, high capacity transmission interconnection maps, media contact information, regulatory agencies, and regional coordinating bodies.

Power outage related products

You might want to have an battery backed emergency sump pump or a water powered backup sump pump, plus a basement water sensor and alarm. Be aware of approaching weather with a weather alert radio and a hand crank emergency radio. Or spring for a 27 kilowatt whole house generator that runs on propane or natural gas.

Updates

March 13-14, 2014. Updated Maine, Maryland, Virginia.

February 11, 2014. Added Sawnee EMC in Georgia north of Atlanta.

December 21, 2013. Reviewing Texas. Added load graph from ERCOT, map for San Bernard Electric Cooperative, map for AEP Texas, entry for Sam Houston Electric Cooperative, map for Austin Electric.

October 4, 2013. Added South Dakota Rural Electric Association map during early season winter storm Atlas. Update Progress Energy Florida to reflect merger with Duke Energy. Added map for Gulf Power (Florida), Mississippi Power. Still no map for Alabama Power. Preparations for TS Karen in the Gulf. Updates to Arizona, Saskatchewan, PEI.

July 10, 2013. Updated Twitter account for Arizona Public Service, added central Arizona's Salt River Project; also updates for the Toronto, Ontario, Canada area.

June 13, 2013. Added new maps from the Southern Company for Georgia Power. No map available for Alabama Power and Gulf Power, also Southern Company utilities.

October 26-29, 2012. Updates for Hurricane Sandy. Con Edison (NYC) has a new link to their storm center. Updated PEPCO media relations contact. Add Delmarva Power mobile apps. Update PSEG twitter. Add NSTAR (Massachusetts).

August 28, 2012 updates several Louisiana electric cooperatives in advance of Hurricane Isaac, as well as details for Mississippi Power. Quick link: Entergy Storm Center (New Orleans + much of Louisiana). News coverage: WWL-TV.

July 10, 2012 updates Alberta after AESO initiates rolling blackouts on EPCOR in response to extreme heat and power plants going offline. 

June 25, 2012 has additional Florida updates for Tropical Storm Debby.

May 27, 2012 has updates from Florida for Tropical Storm Beryl, including new information in Jacksonville, Florida (JEA), Tampa Florida (TECO / Tampa Electric), and updated for Clay Electric (Gainesville).

May 14-16, 2012 notes visits from SurvivalBlog (thanks for the link) and an update of Progress Energy's map for North and South Carolina; maps also added for Vermont (CVPS), eastern Washington (Avista), metro Atlanta (GreyStone), Colorado Springs Utilities, Duke Energy (Indiana) and an entry for Wyoming (Rocky Mountain Power).

April 30, 2012 adds a Twitter feed for Oklahoma Gas and Electric (@OGandE). Some of the OG&E maps render at weird sizes in the Chrome browser I'm using.

April 15, 2012 adds Kansas City Power and Light's map, powered by Obvient Strategies (now a division of Ventyx).

January 12, 2012 adds the service alert map from Puget Sound Energy, which serves Washington State. This map is only activated in severe weather; PSE reported 220,000 homes without service due to heavy snowfall.

November 30 – December 1, 2011 looks at the Santa Ana winds that are affecting California (LA Times), causing power outages and a risk of fires. An LADWP storm outage map at 6:00 p.m. December 1, 2011 shows widespread outages affecting about 118,000 of that utility's 1.4 million customers. Outages in Utah (no maps) and New Mexico are also blamed on high winds.

November 15, 2011 looks at Ohio and Texas.

November 11-12, 2011 adds media contacts and maps for Duke Energy in North Carolina. I'm also working to incorporate a set of international outage information for telco and internet services, which doesn't neatly fit the state-by-state organization of the power grid. If you are in western Massachusetts, a WMECO ratepayer has built their own outage page suitable for even very dumb mobile phones.

A November 9, 2011 update starts to collect media contact pages, especially for utility companies that do not currently publish maps, and I'm looking at Alaska, Michigan, Washington, and Wisconsin.

A November 7, 2011 update adds PSE&G in New Jersey and RG&E in Rochester, NY, and updates several maps in Oklahoma.

The October 30, 2011 "Snowtober" update includes hits to the power grid from the snowstorm .

The September 9, 2011 updates focus on southern California and Arizona, where a widespread power outage occured when the North Gila – Hassayampa 500 kV transmission line near Yuma, Ariz went off line; maps added include the SDGE outage map, a 2003 map of high capacity California interconnects, and a map of utility service areas in California.

The September 6, 2011 updates include new KML (GeoRSS) thematic maps for ConEdison (NY), Pepco (DC), Progress Energy (NC/SC), Delmarva (DE/MD) and Atlantic City Electric (NJ), via Google Crisis Response, plus a new map for Allegheny Power.

The August 25 and 29, 2011 updates includes nine new maps along the US east coast, covering power outages due to Hurricane Irene.

Thanks go to too many people for assisting in the production of this site. A Twitter search for power outage map has been very helpful.

I have been availing myself of state and local Ask a Librarian services to help zero in on maps produced by state agencies.

    My friends dad was an electrician so he had to deal with power outage stuff all the time. I hate it when the power goes out because you feel so helpless. And I don’t know about you but I routinely try to turn the lights on whenever I go into a room. http://www.langstaffandsloan.com
