[ARCHIVED] Power Outages Across the Area

power outages

The Texas electric system is facing an unprecedented power shortage situation due to the extreme winter weather impacting the entire state, including League City. Texans’ electricity consumption needs have far surpassed current power generation. If a power outage lasts more than an hour, it is not a rolling blackout, but a controlled outage.  

According to Texas New Mexico Power, which provides the majority of League City with power, "if your power is out from a controlled outage, please plan with the assumption that you will remain without power until at least Tuesday."

If you are without power, here are some tips to keep you and your family warm.  
  • Close any blinds/curtains or put blankets or towels up to cover windows and provide insulation.
  • Close off rooms to avoid losing heat.
  • Stuff towels in cracks under doors, esp. exterior ones
  • Wear layers of loose-fitting, warm clothing, especially warm socks and gloves if you have them.
  • Eat and drink food to provide energy to warm the body but avoid alcohol or caffeine.
  • If you have candles, lighting them can help act as a heat source, especially in an enclosed space. But do not rely on them, and remember to practice good fire safety.
  • Under no circumstances should you bring a generator inside. They should remain 30 feet away from your home.
  • Do not use a stove or oven for heat, this can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning.
