NEWARK, Del.– Delmarva Power says it is closely monitoring a weather forecast that calls for a wintry mix to affect its service territory this week.

The utility said it will schedule and adjust its workforce with the timing of the weather and any resulting customer outages. While Delmarva Power said it will work around the clock to restore any outages that may occur, customers need to be prepared for the possibility of power outages.
Delmarva Power is in contact with local emergency management officials, the utility noted. 

Customers are asked to call in any outages and stay away from any downed wires. To report outages and downed wires, please call 1-800-898-8042. Follow the prompts and ask for a call back to confirm that power has been restored.

Outages also may be reported through www.delmarva.com or through our mobile app. For natural gas emergencies in New Castle County, call (302) 454-0317.
