Power Outage 30044 Comments and Reports

Shannon Vasquez
We have been without power for over 3 hours now and it came back on then we heard and saw two of the local transformers blow. I hope WaltonEMC will also be out for all of us safely sooner than later. We have had many trees snap and barely miss my house or a nieghbor's. Hoping this passes soon.

What is Power Outage?

What Causes Power Outages?

Outage Safety Tips

  • Stay away from the downed power lines, park vehicles in protected areas.

  • Use portable generators outdoors only, well away from open windows and doors.
  • Pack perishable foods into a cooler, keep refrigerator and freezer doors shut as much as possible.
