A power surge is a sharp increase in voltage. Surges can occur on your electric, phone or even cable TV lines. They are often caused by lightning but can be associated with many other types of uncontrollable events such as hurricanes, tornadoes, ice storms, vehicle accidents involving utility equipment, etc. The most common type of surges are caused by the starting of motor-driven equipment such as your refrigerator, air-conditioner, furnace or garbage disposal.
