This map plots the approximate locations of power outages in Rochester, New York, and is updated every ten minutes. The source data for this map is published by RG&E, but all map-related blame should go to Ryan Tucker <firstname.lastname@example.org>. You can find the source code on GitHub.
Some important tips to keep in mind...
- RG&E only publishes a list of street names. This map's pointer will end up in the geographic center of the street, which will undoubtedly be wrong for really long streets. Look for clusters of outages.
- This map doesn't indicate the actual quantity of power outages or people without power. There may be just one house without power on a street, or every house on a street. There may be multiple unrelated outages on one street, too. There's no way to know.
- This page may be out of date. This page does not get regenerated if there are no outages. (Pure laziness on my part.) If in doubt, check the as-of time.
Also, be sure to check out RG&E's Outage Central for official information, to report outages, or to check on the status of an outage.
IF YOU HAVE A LIFE-THREATENING ELECTRICAL EMERGENCY, CALL RG&E AT 1-800-743-1701 OR CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY. DO NOT TOUCH DOWNED ELECTRICAL LINES, EVER. EVEN IF YOUR STREET IS LISTED HERE.
