This page contains power outage forecasts for Hurricane Michael from the Spatially Generalized Hurricane Power Outage Model (SGHOPM) developed by Guikema, et al. The paper describing it, Predicting Hurricane Power Outages to Support Storm Response Planning, IEEE Access, 2014, is available (open access) here.
We have issued our last update of the power outage forecasting model for Hurricane Michael. Please go to the National Hurricane Center for details on the storm and the currently active storm warnings and advisories.
The outage estimates are provided for informational purposes only and are the product of a research project at the collaborating institutions. The information is provided "as is" without warranty of any kind. The investigators and their universities do not accept any responsibility or liability for the accuracy, content, completeness, legality, or reliability of the information contained on this website. This research was funded in part by the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. National Science Foundation, and a private utility.
For further information, you can contact Seth Guikema via email. In addition, it should be noted that Chengwei Zhai , a University of Michigan PhD student, automated the model and created the graphics of the output.
