If you are in the affected area and experience a power outage, it is important to contact your local electrician. Power outages can cause many dangerous situations, so it is important to take the proper safety precautions.
Some easy preparations can include: Having an emergency flashlight and extra batteries on hand. Making sure all electrical devices are unplugged, especially those that pose a safety hazard (like televisions). If you have medication that needs to be refrigerated, make sure it is stored in a cool place. Finally, keep an eye on elderly family members and neighbors who may be more prone to accidents during an outage.
