Power outages in Douglas County

9:26 a.m. – July 5, 2022

Our crews were able to restore the below circuits in portions at 9:10 a.m., 9:14 a.m. and 9:23 a.m.. They are currently patrolling the circuits to find the source of the trouble so they can make repairs and prevent further issues. We do not anticipate this work will lead to any additional outages. However, if our team encounters unforeseen problems, we will report updates here.

9:18 a.m. – July 5, 2022

OPPD crews are responding to two circuit outages that are tied to nearly 1,400 current power outages in southeast Omaha. They lost power at 9:04 a.m.

The first circuit, serving 239 customers, impacts those between Harney St. (north) and Marcy St. (south), between 18th St. (west) and the Missouri River (east). The second circuit, serving 1,124 customers, impacts those between B St. (north) and Q St. (south), from 28th St. (west) to Gibson Rd. (east).

We do not yet know the cause; therefore, we do not have an estimated time for restoration. But we will report updates here as we learn them.
