Power outages:
In general, power companies are asking their customers to be patient and be prepared. You will be one of many with the same problem, but DO report any lines down, and DO NOT approach a line or a tree that is down.

To report service loss, call your local power provider.

To report a physical danger, such as a power line or tree down, call 911 or your local police.

All news is local: check your local websites for local information.
