Outage involves danger and is a safety issue to the public i.e. live wires on the ground, fire, etc. Exercise extreme caution. This type of outage will be given top priority at all times.
Outage that involves interruption to essential services, i.e. the hospital. If there are no safety/danger related outages, this outage will be given top priority.
Outage that may be caused by wind, fallen trees, animal contact, and or defective equipment. This type of outage typically poses little to no danger to the public, aside from the loss of power. If there are multiple general outages at any given time they will be handled in a priority sequence that restores power to the greatest number of customers. (i.e. Outage 1 – 650 customers, Outage 2 – 2000 customers, Outage 3 – 400 customers, the restoration sequence would be Outage 2, Outage 1, Outage 3)
Outage has been planned by NBH, with ample notice provided to the affected customers. This type of outage is used to repair and upgrade existing infrastructure and/or construct or connect new infrastructure.
Please note that all outage data provided via this power outage map is for information purposes only. All times referenced are approximate and sustained outages affecting 300 customers or less may not be represented.
