If you see a downed line, stay away from it and call 911. If a power line contacts your car, stay in the vehicle and keep others away. Never drive over downed power lines.
Keep phone lines open for emergencies. They are aware of the outages. Assessment teams are directing repair crews once they locate damage.
Damage to meters or other facility equipment may require repair before reconnection to the grid.
Crews may be working in your area. Slow down and give the line crews plenty of room when you see a utility warning sign. Please do not disrupt their work unless it is urgent. Rest assured they are working as quickly and safely as possible to restore your power.
Just because you don’t see crews in your area doesn’t mean they aren’t working. They repair the source first and then follow repairs until it reaches your home.
