Different crews may be working on that."And if your home is the only one without power in your neighborhood, you may read a few of these explanations PSO provided:- Fuses or circuit breakers in your home could have tripped and halted power- Tree limbs could have fallen on the line serving your home- Fuses on the transformer that serves your home may have tripped or could be damaged, and the primary line feeding the transformer could be damaged.PSO also wants to remind all customers to report power outages if they haven't already.
