KU launches online power outage map for customers

A new tool will help thousands of electric company customers find out which areas are dealing with power outages.

Kentucky Utilities has launched an outage map on its website.

It shows real-time outages across its service areas.

The map will be available year-round.

KU officials say it will be valuable during severe weather, ice storms, and even sunny days.

"That's what we wanted to do, was just provide customers with information so they can see where we're dealing with outages, or where we're working them, and what kind of restoration time that we think it's going to take us to get those outages restored," Cliff Feltham of Kentucky Utilities said.

You can search for outages by county and zip code.
