On Jan. 9, Omaha Public Power District unveiled this new Storm & Outage Center.
This site replaces a storm and outage information blog that has served us well for more than five years. But it was time to add more features, like regular stories, tips, videos and infographics related to outages, restoration and the seasonal weather challenges we face in southeast Nebraska. Visitors to the site can comment on these elements, and we will add new content weekly.
We will continue to publish weather and outage alerts, as well as outage updates. We’ve located the outage map, as well as current weather information, in the center of the page.
We also plan to keep electric safety reminders front and center. Another important note: the site can be viewed on desktop computers, tablets and mobile devices so you can have the updates at your fingertips.
At the bottom of the site are video and photo galleries, and customers can upload their own videos and photos to the site, too. The site is tied to our social media channels – Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.
This site will provide a higher level of customer service. As always, we welcome your feedback and suggestions.
