Our power is out again. Ever time the wind blows here, the power goes out. I get so sick of this place. I wish I had of never moved here. It’s like a third world country.

I just reported our outage and I was the third person to report from my zip code. Please everyone, send an email or 'try" to call but report cause y'all are right. When the wind blows, it goes out....

The service is awful. There's nothing in place that I can get in touch with someone about power outages. I would hate to think that if there's a line down and still has power on someone could get killed. And not tohave nobody to get in touch with.

The entire city of Bessemer AL is without power Red lights, Med Ctr West hospital dark, no stores able to service customers and the wind isn't blowing hard at all. Something strange is going on around here. Several cars batteries died which seemed to happen at same time as power outage. Almost EMP like but that's crazy but so is the world during coronavirus 2020.
