The June 29 storms that impacted much of the East coast and AEP’s service service territory brought power lines and poles down everywhere. As our crews restore power, please stay away from ALL downed lines. You can’t hear, see or smell electricity, so assume all downed lines are live and energized and stay away. Report downed lines to 911 and your local power company. Learn more about the dangers of downed lines with this factsheet.
AEP’s utility units operate as AEP Ohio, AEP Texas, Appalachian Power (in Virginia, West Virginia), AEP Appalachian Power (in Tennessee), Indiana Michigan Power, Kentucky Power, Public Service of Oklahoma, and Southwestern Electric Power Company (in Arkansas, Louisiana and east Texas).
