Those who are still without power are asked to report their outage even if they think their neighbors have reported it already. Hall says this will help Rocky Mountain Power determine who has power and how to more effectively get power restored to everyone.

ORIGINAL STORY: 175,000 people without power in northern Utah

TUESDAY 9/8/2020 4:45 p.m.

NORTHERN UTAH, (ABC4 News) – Rocky Mountain Power is currently indicating they have 175,000 homes without power as high winds continue to rip through northern Utah.

At 12 p.m. MDT, through three states there were nearly 183,000 customer out of service:

  • Utah: 170,000
  • Idaho: 3,000
  • Wyoming: 10,000

The bulk of the outages are centralized from the Point of the Mountain, in Utah County, to the Idaho border.

Spencer Hall, spokesperson for RMP said the severity of the storm has caused a lot of damage in Salt Lake County, Ogden, and Farmington and they are trying their best to get to everyone and have everyone’s power restored.

Additional crews and line personnel are assisting in outage restoration efforts, as well as additional customer care agents.

“We make sure we are well-prepared with crews and equipment for severe weather events,” said Curtis Mansfield, Rocky Mountain Power vice president of operations. “This storm is impacting thousands of customers across our six-state territory and we appreciate our customers’ patience as we work to get everyone restored.”

Rocky Mountain Power advises customers to tie down items such as tarps, trampolines, outdoor furniture and other items to avoid property damage and debris getting into power lines.

Treat all downed wires as live and dangerous and avoid both downed trees and powerlines as well as keep pets far away from those areas.

Customers should continue to report power outages as it assists crews in pinpointing the cause and facilitates restoration efforts.

Customers can call Customer Care at 877-508-5088, use the Rocky Mountain Power app, or text out to 759677 and receive updates during the restoration process.

As the front moves through Northern Utah Tuesday morning it continues to trigger gusty canyon winds along the Wasatch Front, parts of the Uinta Basin, Castle County, parts of the west desert, San Rafael Swell, and near canyons in Washington County.

Canyon winds for the Wasatch Front are expected to be particularly destructive in Davis and Weber counties, impacting cities at the mouth of the canyons like Farmington, Centerville, Kaysville, Bountiful, and Ogden.

High wind warnings are posted and begin at midnight and will remain in effect.

There is not any estimates of restoration at this time for any of the outages. As the storm moves through and crews can get out to assess the damages, you can continue to monitor them at Rockymountainpower.net.
