OPPD responding to power outages

Saturday, March 16, 2019

3:05 p.m.  OPPD currently has approximately 777 power outages throughout its service territory.

Of those outages, 578 are due to a substation issue in Fremont. However, due to flooding, our crews have not been able to reach the location to investigate.

The Fremont area outage began at 1:53 p.m. Those impacted are between County Road W (north), County Road N (south), County Road 8 (east) and County Road 20 (west).

An earlier outage impacting 129 customers in Bellevue, which began at 1:35 p.m., was restored at 2:47 p.m.

We will post more information here as we receive it. Meantime, if you are in an area that is not impacted by flooding and are without power, please report your service disruption online or by calling 800-554-6773.
