Stormy weather can cause power lines to fall. This can create hazards – electrifying puddles, wet grass, and the surrounding area. Don’t touch anyone or anything in contact with a downed power line. Always assume downed power lines are energized and dangerous. Stay away and call 911.
Always be aware when you’re around overhead power lines. Stay at least 10 feet away from both overhead power lines and electrical facilities, and never approach or touch overhead power lines or any person or object in contact with the lines.
