The Texas electric system is facing an unprecedented power shortage situation due to the extreme winter weather impacting the entire state, including League City and the region. Texans’ electricity consumption needs have far surpassed current power generation

If a power outage lasts more than an hour, it is not a rolling blackout. Generators are down across the state and operators are working on it. There is no timeline yet for restoration. More than 500,000 homes throughout the state are without power.
Do not call 911 to report a power outage. Most of League City is served by TNMP.  
To report an outage or hear an updated estimate, call 888-866-7456, Select option 1

If you are without power you should: 
•Close any blinds/curtains or put blankets or towels up to cover windows and provide insulation.
•Close off rooms to avoid losing heat.
•Stuff towels in cracks under doors, esp. exterior ones
•Wear layers of loose-fitting, warm clothing, especially warm socks and gloves if you have them.
•Eat and drink food to provide energy to warm the body but avoid alcohol or caffeine.
•If you have candles, lighting them can help act as a heat source, especially in an enclosed space. But do not rely on them, and remember to practice good fire safety.
•Under no circumstances should you bring a generator inside. They should remain 30 feet away from your home.
•Do not use a stove or oven for heat, this can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning.
