• Temporary service has been established to customers in the areas where new construction will be required to reestablish permanent service.

LP&L, along with our partners in City Emergency Management, continue to urge all customers regardless of the status of their electricity to exercise extreme caution around any electrical generators being used and power lines.

Good common sense and respect for the potential danger posed by this equipment is of vital importance. Report downed lines that may pose an electrocution or fire threat to 911. Be vigilant around trees and watch for falling trees or branches.

LP&L and city leaders will continue to keep you informed of important information as situation progresses.
