Our crew is still working to restore power to the customers who remain without power. Barring unforeseen circumstances, we estimate power should be restored to those customers by noon.

We were able to bring more customers back online at 9:25 a.m. However, 414 customers are still without power.

Unfortunately, we do not have an estimated time of restoration just yet. But we will not be able to bring power back to those of you still impacted until our line crew is able to get the primary cable put back up.

We will post updates here as we learn more.

9:15 a.m.

Our crew was able to restore power to 300 customers shortly before 9 a.m., and work cotninues to restore those of you who remain without power in north central Omaha.

We anticipate some power switching our crews are doing will be restoring groups of customers, bit by bit. Meantime, a line crew will work to get that primary power line back up. We do not yet have an estimated time for full restoration.

Thanks for your patience as we work through this morning’s outage.
