MLGW News Release
MLGW crews prepare for severe weather
January 30, 2023

Memphis Light, Gas and Water Division is preparing for severe weather as the National Weather Service is forecasting freezing rain and sleet in the Mid-South beginning tonight and lasting through Wednesday, February 1. Impacts to the MLGW service area may include power outages, tree damage, and travel difficulties.

MLGW crews and additional contract crews are ready to respond to any local damage or outages. Customers are also asked to visit MLGW’s storm readiness guide for tips on preparing for weather emergencies:

Customers should avoid contact with downed power lines—even if their home or area has experienced a loss of power as the lines could still be energized.
