probably has power now, but will lose it so they can repair other parts of the grid.
Seeing as how its not winter anymore, tank temps are probably not much of a problem. The issue will be filtration. As long as your water is on, just do a water change every couple of days depending on tank size, larger tanks, you can get away with less changes, smaller tanks need more frequent WCs. As for plants, if you have live ones, theres not much you can do. You can pull them out and put them in a tray with water by a window to keep them alive and replant. Usually a couple of days w/o light wont be terrible, but 2 weeks might be a bit long for plants, esp moderate to high light ones.
Lastly in terms of O2 levels in the water, no power = no artificial surface agitation. You can use a spoon and bucket when you WC and pump as many bubbles as you can into the water to disturb the surface but beyond that theres not much you can do. This shouldn't be that big of a problem for fish though, so unless your fish look like they are gasping for air, it will be fine.
