MLGW News Release
Most customers who can take power should be restored by Friday
February 10, 2022
Charging stations and other assistance is available for MLGW customers

(February 10, 2022 10 a.m.) – Restoration should be complete for most customers who can take power, by 11:59 p.m. Friday, February 11. For some Memphis Light, Gas and Water customers, restoration could stretch into Saturday. Ninety contract crews are in Memphis from AL, IL, LA, KY, OK, TN and VA to assist with repairs.

Crews are saturating neighborhoods, but customers should stay vigilant and watch out for downed power lines as outages are still being assessed. Always treat downed wires as if they are live. Stay away from them, and do not let others near them. Report downed lines to MLGW’s emergency hotline at (901) 528-4465. Also, customers are asked to leave their front porch lights on and gates unlocked. This helps crews tell if they’re still without power and gain access to make repairs efficiently.
