Nichols Hills Ice Storm Update – November 2, 2020 – 3:00 p.m.
Ice Storm Update from OG&E

Power has been restored for more than 325,000 customers (78% percent of customers affected). More restoration personnel are arriving tonight, bringing our total to nearly 3,800. You can find your estimated time of restoration by signing into your oge.com account or by entering your address in the "Find a place" box in the upper right corner of the OG&E System Watch map. You can also get notifications via text, email, or phone by signing up for myOGEalerts. Ensure your home is ready to receive power; if your weather head, service cable, or meter socket is damaged, you will need to contact a certified electrician to make necessary repairs before service can be restored to your home.

This historic ice storm heavily damaged 178 structures on our transmission system.
In addition to our transmission system, 1,134 poles, 1,050 cross-arms, 194 transformers have been damaged or destroyed. We have crews assigned to remove downed power lines. This is in addition to all other crews that remove downed lines as they restore power. This is the largest number of storm-related outages in our history, and the damage is extensive. It will take time to get to all the downed lines. Be assured; crews will get to your home. In the meantime, be safe; always assume a line is live and stay away.

Safety precautions should be followed when using a portable generator. Never run a generator indoors, plug appliances directly into the generator, and do not connect a generator to your home’s circuits. Crews are following COVID-19 preventative measures, including social distancing, as they restore power. Please do not approach crews and utility vehicles in your neighborhood. Doing so could jeopardize your safety and will only delay the restoration process. For your protection, do not post personal information such as addresses, account numbers, phone numbers, etc. on OG&E social media channels.
