Eye of the Storm – Outage Data in a Superstorm

When the power goes out, a utility’s outage map is the go-to public-facing resource for storm response efforts. But unfortunately, many utility systems lack the real-time information customers need to keep themselves and community stakeholders in the loop on power restoration efforts.

In this WEBINAR, team members from Kissimmee Utility Authority and DataCapable discussed how they were able to deploy an upgraded outage map ahead of Hurricane Ian swiftly and how that outage map, powered by the DataCapable Platform, helped them respond to the third-costliest weather disaster on record in the United States.
