SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (KIFI) – Rocky Mountain Power crews are responding to wide-spread outages caused by heavy snow and strong winds across southeast Idaho, affecting roughly 12,000 customers.

Rocky Mountain Power supports state and local emergency management organizations and encourages customers to follow the recommendation of local officials.

Customers are also encouraged to be prepared for outages and that Idahoans have an emergency plan to be prepared for up to 72 hours without essential services for any emergency.

Here are some simple steps customers can take to prepare and stay informed:

Update your contact information so we can reach you.
