How common are hurricane caused power outages?

    While seventy percent of all power outages in the US are caused by weather-related events, the answer is contingent upon how often hurricanes occur. Because this is variable, it’s difficult to give an exact figure.  However, because of the destructive nature of hurricanes, it would be safe to say that in the majority of instances, a power outage will not be uncommon.

    Once a hurricane hits, power outages are bound to follow since they are all too common once a hurricane has stricken and they are to be expected.  The high winds from the storm can take down power poles and cause damage to power plants.  It can take many weeks or even months before power company personnel are able to fully restore power. This is why there is such high demand for backup power generators.
