Tampa Electric is closely monitoring Hurricane Ian, prepping for potential power outages.
In anticipation of the hurricane, Tampa Electric has called in thousands of line workers from across the country to come and help restore power after the storm.
The electric company may interrupt service to a small portion of evacuated Zone A in downtown Tampa to help reduce restoration time.
TECO is warning residents to prep for extended power outages. Here are some ways to monitor outages:
• Call 1-877-588-1010.
• Sign up for outage notifications by text, email or phone calls here.
• Check the outage map and restoration information here.
