In the event your electricity goes out, here's where to turn.

PPL customers can call 1-800-342-5775 to report an outage or go to pplelectric.com/outage.

For those who get their power from Met Ed/JCP&L, the number to call for an outage is 1-888-544-4877 or firstenergycorp.com.

The outage links work on smartphones.

PPL officials say the utility is getting ready for the storm.

“We take every storm seriously and prepare so that we can respond effectively and safely to our customers,” said David Bonenberger, vice president of Distribution Operations for PPL Electric Utilities. “With each storm, we’ve improved our systems and refined our processes. We’ll do all we can to keep our customers and the public informed.”

PPL says it has 100 utility workers from its sister utilities in Kentucky who should arrive Friday afternoon to help with power restoration efforts, if needed.
