The National Weather Service forecast calls for steady winds Thursday and Friday with gusts reaching 35 mph. Strong winds may bring down branches and trees, and snap powerlines and utility poles. Please be alert for sagging or fallen lines, and treat every powerline as if it’s energized.
Members who see downed or sagging power lines should stay clear of the area and contact Southwestern Electric Cooperative at (800) 637-8667. In addition, people clearing debris should look for sagging or fallen wires before they begin working.
