This paper presents new statistical models that predict the number of hurricaneand ice storm-related electric power outages likely to occur in each 3 km 3 km grid cell in a region. The models are based on a large database of recent outages experienced by three major East Coast power companies in six hurricanes and eight ice storms. A spatial generalized linear mixed modeling (GLMM) approach was used in which spatial correlation is incorporated through random effects. Models were fitted using a… CONTINUE READING
