All of the switches in my house are out of electricity. However, the outlets are still working. I don't know what is wrong with them. Similar thing has happened during last rain. Last time I called my local power company and the
technician were able to fix it within 10mins. However, it took them 6 hours to arrive at my house. Anyone knows what is the potential problems? Because I would like fix this issue to prevent future problems. Thanks
Switches are generally for lighting, but can also be on the same circuits as outlets. You say "all switches", which puzzles me, because rooms are divided up so all switches would not be on one circuit. If multiple circuits are failing, so should outlets. You could have everything on one side of the two side line failing. That would also disable 240 volt appliances like ranges, dryers, etc. When you throw "rain" is the statement, that bothers me. That could be a dangerous problem. Have the house connections and service panel checked by a pro.
