The majority of Hudson Public Power outages have been restored, with the exception of some isolated issues. If you are still experiencing an outage, please call Public Works at 330-342-1750 by 4 p.m. today. Though we are aware of many of the isolated issues, staff will make sure Hudson Public Power is notified / updated immediately. We apologize for the inconvenience. Our crews are on Day 3 of trying to completely restore power and are doing their best. In addition to restoring power they are also aware there are still some downed lines and will be getting to those as soon as possible.
Debris Removal Update:
Our Public Works crews continue debris cleanup in and along the roadways, along with downed tree removal in the public right-of-way and on city properties. This will continue into next week.
Resident Brush Removal Program Begins Monday
The City is providing a brush clean up beginning Monday, June 6. To participate, residents must have their tree branches to the curb by Monday morning. Place your brush in the grass as close to the street as possible without blocking sidewalks or disrupting traffic. Only brush placed before Monday will be picked up. Crews will not be returning for additional clean up. PLEASE NOTE: Only branches that can be moved by hand will be accepted during the program. Logs and tree trunks will not be accepted. Staff will work to complete pick-up as quickly as possible.
THURSDAY AFTERNOON UPDATE:
**PLEASE NOTE: We are aware of all the outages throughout Hudson, so they no longer need to be reported. Rest assured that our crews are working as quickly as possible to restore your power.**
Hudson Public Power is working with mutual aid crews from Orrville, Wadsworth, Dover, Westerville, and Cuyahoga Falls (thank you to all the crews!). They are currently working to restore power in the following areas (please note that this includes streets surrounding the list below):
- 91/Herrick Park/Hudson-Aurora Area

Public Works crews are out picking up debris. Street sweepers will be in to assist with small debris removal on many roadways.
Thank you for your continued patience as we work through storm damage control.
THURSDAY MORNING UPDATE: HUDSON, OH (June 2, 2022) – Last night’s storm, with estimated 70 mph winds, caused widespread damage throughout the City. Hundreds of trees came down, blocking roads and taking out power lines.
By 7 p.m., approximately 75% of Hudson Public Power customers were without power. HPP crews were out all night restoring power. This morning, about 20% of our electric system is still down. Today, Hudson has mutual aid crews from other cities in town to help restore power to remaining customers. *If you have FirstEnergy/Ohio Edison, please refer to their website or outage line for outage information specific to your account.*
We expect to restore power to the Chadds Ford area later this morning. Hudson Park Estates will be restored today. Crews will be working on SR 91 between Valley View Road and Hines Hill Road today. The Old Tannery and Clairhaven/Nantucket areas are also without power that we hope to restore later this afternoon. We anticipate having power back to all Hudson Public Power customers by tonight, barring any unforeseen circumstances.
Currently, all intersection traffic lights are working, and all roads are open, except East/West Case where streetlights are down and Middleton Road near Lascala where there are cones within the roadway due to low hanging power lines. Middleton Road is currently open, but you may wish to choose an alternate route.
Public Works will begin cleanup today and remove the large trees/limbs along the edges of the public roadways. They are also working in the Parks and Cemeteries.
Property owners may place branches that can be hand moved in the right-of-way/tree lawn area and the City will pick up the debris in the coming days. No logs, tree trunks, cut up trees, trash, or junk items will be picked up. Please do not block storm ditches, sidewalks, the road, or driveways with the debris.
Residents who have large trees/limbs on their private property that may have fallen or damaged private property should submit a claim to their private insurance company if there were damages and contact a tree service for removal of the damaged trees.
