For Immediate Release
- Delmarva Power is closely monitoring a weather forecast that calls for snow
and gusty winds that could potentially affect the company's service territory
today into Tuesday. The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather
advisory for the region.
Delmarva Power will work around the
clock to restore any power outages that may occur, but customers should be
prepared for the possibility of service interruptions.
Heavy, wet snow can weigh down tree
limbs and bring them into contact with power lines causing power outages. Wet
snow can also adversely affect saturated soil and allow trees already weakened
by previous storms to fall onto power lines and equipment, causing power
outages. Outages can also occur due to drivers skidding into utility poles
along icy and snow-covered roads.
Delmarva Power is in contact with
local emergency management officials.
Customers are asked to please call in any outages
and stay away from any downed wires. To report outages and downed wires, call
1-800-898-8042 (New Castle, Cecil and Harford counties) or 1-800-898-8045 (Kent
and Sussex counties and Eastern Shore of Maryland). Follow the prompts and ask
for a call back to confirm that power has been restored. Outages also may be
reported through www.delmarva.com or our mobile app, available for download at www.delmarva.com/mobileapp. For natural gas emergencies in New Castle County,
