Some possible causes of a Power Outage include:

  1. 1. Severe weather conditions such as lightning, strong winds, heavy snow, or ice storms. 
    2.  Equipment failure or malfunction within the power grid or at a local substation
    3.  Accidents, such as vehicle collisions with utility poles or other infrastructure
    4.  Overloading of the power grid due to high demand or equipment stress
    5.  Acts of vandalism or sabotage or terrorism.
    6.  Natural disasters like earthquakes, floods, hurricanes or wildfires.
