To assist areas that may be affected by Hurricane Irene, we've compiled the following list of utility contact information. Contact your utility company, not your electric supplier, to report an outage. Utility systems can locate generalized outages, but you should report your specific outage to help pinpoint areas with the most need. (UPDATE: Click here for a separate post we're updating with the latest news on Irene, including maps and stats.)

If you would like to see information added to this list, leave a note in the comment thread below.

(NOTE: Print this list out for reference in case you lose power! )
