How to Keep Connected and Informed as Winter Storm Power Outages Continue to Impact Oregon and SW Washington    

UPDATE 1/19/24

Power failures continue across Oregon and Southwest Washington because of the severe weather, impacting homes and businesses across the region. During power outages, Comcast services may stop functioning. Mobile phone service may also be affected. In some cases, you may have power back but not your Comcast Services because the electricity supply that powers our network has not been restored outside the immediate area.

We are committed to working around the clock to restore services quickly and safely. However, emergency management procedures dictate that electricity must be restored first, and Comcast must receive clearance that it is safe for our crews to begin any restoration work. Should customers experience a loss of service due to a power outage, local power must first be restored before Xfinity, and Comcast Business video, phone, or internet services can begin working again.

Our network technicians are working closely with local utility partners to restore services once power is restored.
