As expected, Memphis woke up to snow, ice and freezing rain this morning. Whether or not that means power outages remains to be seen, but Memphis Light Gas and Water says they are monitoring conditions and are ready to respond.
From an MLGW statement released Thursday:
“MLGW employees have been monitoring this situation and we have all of our resources in place. If indeed a significant storm blankets our city, we are ready to respond,” said MLGW President and CEO Jerry Collins Jr.
Please do not assume that MLGW knows your power is out. Customers are reminded to call 544-6500 to report an electric outage. The automated outage reporting system will receive the report and let customers know of a possible restoration time, if one is available.
Also, customers are encouraged to download MLGW’s App which is available in the Google Play and Apple iTunes market. MLGW’s App allows customers access to MLGW’s outage map and outage updates.
Customers are reminded to call the following numbers:
- To Report an Outage: 544-6500
- To Report an Emergency (such as downed lines or gas leaks): 528-4465
- All Other Inquiries: 544-MLGW (6549)
