All original power outages caused by the February 3 ice storm have been restored by Memphis Light, Gas and Water and contracted crews. Newer outages are being addressed today. MLGW customers without power should call 544-6500 and report the outage.
Damage done by Ice Storm Landon interrupted power for more than 233,000 MLGW customers. For comparison, the ice storm of February 1994 interrupted power for 281,000 MLGW customers. Landon will go on record as one of the worst weather events to hit the Mid-South.
Ninety outside line crews responded to MLGW’s request for help and 78 tree trimming crews also assisted in restoration efforts.
MLGW is the largest three-service public power utility in the nation, serving more than 437,000 customers in Memphis and Shelby County.
