The vast majority of the country is experiencing some form of outage in some capacity, according to a new report by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
The NOAA report shows that nearly 2,000 of the nation’s 4,000 counties, which cover more than 10 percent of the US, have experienced some form on the grid at least once since November 20, when an unprecedented fire broke out in the San Francisco Bay Area.
A majority of these counties have reported some level of power outages in some form or another, with only a handful having reported a severe outage.
NOAA’s data shows that the largest number of counties with outages have occurred in Alaska and Hawaii.
Alaska, which had a major wildfire last year, is experiencing its worst outage since the 1950s.
The most recent outage was caused by a wildfire near Alaska’s northernmost village, Skagway.
This latest outage is being blamed on a massive storm system and a severe drought.
According to the NOAA report, about 60 percent of Alaska’s counties are experiencing intermittent or extreme outages.
The counties experiencing the greatest frequency of outages are in the South and West, where there are fewer severe outages and higher temperatures and rainfall.
While many areas have been experiencing some sort of outage for years, the amount of outlying counties has increased dramatically in the past decade, especially in the Southeast, where extreme weather events have occurred at the highest rates.
These regions are often home to oil and gas fields, logging, and logging concessions.
The Southern Tier of the United States is also experiencing the most extreme weather, with nearly half of the counties experiencing extreme outage.
Some of the states experiencing the highest outages, according the NOAA, are California, Texas, Nevada, Florida, and Arizona.
Alaska and the Southwest of the U.S., which have been affected by severe storms and droughts, are experiencing a more gradual rise in the number of out of service areas.
The highest number of service-outage counties, according NOAA, is in Texas, where almost 1,600 are experiencing severe outage, with the highest number occurring in the central and southern portions of the state.
