Storm report from Evergy

Storms throughout our service area last night caused more than 30,000 customers to lose power with parts of Butler County, Kan. most impacted. A huge thank you to our Evergy crews 💙💚, which made great progress over night, restoring power for more than 85 percent of impacted customers.

We currently have about 1250 customers without power in Butler County (down from 9,000 last night) and continue to make progress. With just a few hours of daylight for our crews to work with, we do not have an estimate for restoration for outages in the Kansas City or Wichita areas and ask for your patience as our crews work safely to restore power to the remaining customers. You can follow our progress at

As a reminder, watch for downed power lines. Tree limbs that are near power lines may come into contact with power lines if you’re trying to move or remove them. Please assume anything is still energized and maintain a safe distance. 💙💚
