MidAmerican Energy Reports Power Outages Affecting Thousands in Metro Area Following Sunday's Storm

On Sunday afternoon, a severe storm swept through the Quad Cities region, leaving thousands of MidAmerican Energy customers without power. As of Monday morning, approximately 6,000 customers were still experiencing outages.

The storm brought heavy rain, strong winds, and lightning, which caused widespread damage to electrical infrastructure. Downed trees and power lines have been reported in numerous locations, hindering restoration efforts.

MidAmerican Energy crews have been working diligently to restore power to affected areas. However, due to the extensive damage, full restoration may take several hours or even days for some customers.

Affected Areas:

The power outages have primarily impacted customers in the Davenport, Bettendorf, Moline, and Rock Island metropolitan areas. Specific neighborhoods and streets affected include:

  • Davenport: Downtown, Brady Street, West End
  • Bettendorf: Duck Creek, Green Meadows, Crow Creek
  • Moline: Devonwood, Bendixen Court, Lynnewood Village
  • Rock Island: Southwest Davenport, South Rock Island, Woodlawn

Restoration Timeline:

MidAmerican Energy estimates that the majority of outages will be resolved by Monday evening. However, some customers in hard-hit areas may experience longer restoration times.

The company has deployed additional crews from neighboring states to assist with restoration efforts. They are working around the clock to replace damaged equipment and restore power as quickly as possible.

Customer Support:

Customers who are experiencing an outage are encouraged to report it online or by calling MidAmerican Energy's customer service line at (888) 427-5632.

The company also recommends that customers stay informed by monitoring its social media channels (Facebook and Twitter) for updates on restoration progress.

Safety Tips:

MidAmerican Energy reminds customers to stay safe during power outages by following these precautions:

  • Stay away from downed power lines. Always assume they are live and dangerous.
  • If you see a downed line, report it immediately to MidAmerican Energy or your local utility.
  • Use flashlights for lighting, instead of candles, to prevent fire hazards.
  • Keep refrigerators and freezers closed to preserve food.
  • If you have medical equipment that requires electricity, make necessary arrangements for backup power.

Alternative Power Sources:

Customers who need alternative power sources can consider renting generators or purchasing portable power banks. However, it is crucial to use generators safely and properly to avoid potential hazards.

Additional Information:

MidAmerican Energy will provide regular updates on its website and social media channels. Customers are encouraged to check for the latest information on estimated restoration times and affected areas.

The company urges patience and understanding as crews work tirelessly to restore power to all customers.
