An outage buddy is a neighbor or someone off island who has access to a smartphone or internet even when the power is out and can access the OPALCO outage map. Your buddy can share the latest updates with you and make sure you have what you need during the outage. It is important to check on each other during storms and major power outages so find a buddy you can check on and who will check on you.
During business hours, there will be hourly reports on major outages. After hours, updating varies depending on size and duration of the outage. The OPALCO outage map automatically updates every 10 minutes 24/7.
