AEP says their crews are preparing equipment and supplies for possible power outages and that customers should prepare as well.
AEP says crews will work to restore any power outages as quickly and safely as possible — however, road conditions, lingering wind gusts and extreme wind chills could delay some restoration efforts.
“We know our customers depend on us to keep the power on — especially during the extreme cold and at a time when many are celebrating the holidays,” said Marc Reitter, president and chief operating officer of AEP Ohio.
“Our teams stand ready and are prepared to restore power should outages occur. We’ll continue to keep our customers updated on what to expect and are encouraging everyone to be as prepared as possible.”
