How this could impact your neighborhood
Winds have increased above 40 mph, and our crews are sheltering from the storm for their safety. As soon as conditions improve, damage assessment will begin and our crews will work around the clock to restore power as quickly and safely as possible. Please prepare for extended outages. Sign-up for free outage notifications and report an outage by visiting our Storm Center. Remember to stay safe, and avoid all downed power lines and floodwaters, as they can hide downed power lines and pose other dangers – for more safety tips and updates, follow our Facebook, Twitter and Nextdoor accounts. Thank you for your patience.
At Tampa Electric, we're committed to providing you with safe, affordable and reliable electric service. Our Storm Protection Plan (SPP) is a roughly $100 million a year investment toward increasing that reliability. The plan also provides for faster restoration after a storm. Work is beginning so you might see crews working to strengthen power lines, underground lines and trim trees.
