If your electricity is out, report it to your electrical utility company. Do not call 911 to report a power outage!
Always stay away from downed power lines. Even lines that appear dead can be energized. Keep children and pets inside and safely away from downed power lines. Also, stay out of flooded basements.
Residents who lose power are encouraged to shelter in place until it is safe to travel. If you are in need of shelter, please reach out to family and friends.
Residents are also reminded of the importance of operating generators a safe distance from the house to prevent carbon monoxide from entering the home.
