Keeping Washington Connected: Prepare for Winter Storms

Severe weather in Washington is unpredictable and can cause outages. But with Comcast, there are still ways to stay connected, entertained, and informed. In most cases of severe weather, the two most significant impacts are commercial power outages and damage to our network. We are committed to working around the clock to restore services as quickly and safely as possible.

Comcast’s Internet, TV and telephone services for homes and businesses require commercial power. During a power outage, these Comcast services may stop functioning. Mobile phone service may also be affected. In a power outage, we cannot access the network and restore service until after your local utility has gone in to fix and restore their services.

As a result, you may get power restored at your home or business and not have access to Comcast services. As always, in these situations, we work closely with our local utility partners to restore services once commercial power is restored. While utility companies in our state plan to avoid power outages and quickly resolve any outages, service interruptions are possible.

Here are a few things you can do to prepare for any weather-related outage:
