“Based on current forecasts, there is a very real potential that our community may lose power due to strong and damaging wind gusts.  Power outages could last from a few hours to a several days depending on the damage,” Leonard said.  “Please refer all calls and inquiries about your service to your respective power companies.”

As always, please use 911 for emergencies only.  All non-emergencies should be referred to your local 7 digit non-emergency numbers.
