More Power Outages Here in Alabama.

The top 5 states for highest annual average counts of 1+ hour outages were Texas (N = 11,504), Georgia (N = 10,609), Louisiana (N = 7826), Mississippi (N = 7188), and Alabama (N = 6240).

(Notice the cluster of South/Central Alabama counties in red in map "b"...indicative of the largest number of one-hour electric outages) The other map ("a") indicates a larger number of 8-hour outages in the Birmingham area.)

 The research, published in April in Nature Communications, finds that power outages cluster in the Northeast, South and Appalachia.
