Hydro One Storm Centre
Hydro One Mobile Application
The app allows customers to access an interactive outage map from the palm of their hand anytime, anywhere. The map is updated every 15 minutes and displays both planned and unplanned outages and is searchable by address. If there is a power outage, crew status, estimated time of power restoration and cause, if known, are displayed. This allows customers to make choices on whether they should stay in their homes during an outage or make arrangements to stay with friends or family depending on the estimated restoration time of their power.
Customers will also get the latest news from Hydro One delivered directly to their device.
