Special Weather Statement for Catawba County, NC

Issued by The National Weather Service

Greenville-Spartanburg, SC

 Mon, Feb 16, 8:58 am EST

 ... DEALING WITH ICE AND SNOW STORMS...

 HEAVY ACCUMULATIONS OF ICE AND SNOW ON TREES AND POWER LINES OFTEN CAUSE ELECTRICAL OUTAGES. WHEN A WINTER STORM WARNING FOR SIGNIFICANT ICE OR SNOW ACCUMULATIONS IS ISSUED FOR YOUR LOCATION... TAKE IMMEDIATE STEPS TO PREPARE FOR ANY POWER OUTAGES. THESE STEPS MIGHT INCLUDE... LOCATING FLASHLIGHTS... LANTERNS... AND PORTABLE RADIOS SO THAT THEY ARE EASILY ACCESSIBLE IF THE POWER GOES OUT. CHECK THAT THEY HAVE FRESH BATTERIES.

 

 

Situations such as storms, accidents, animals or construction-related incidents can cause power outages. If this happens, we will mobilize crews to get your service safely restored as quickly as reasonably possible.

If your power goes out, check to see if your neighbors have power. If your home is the only one without power, check your circuit breakers or fuses to determine if the outage is a result of a household problem. Do not assume we automatically know about your outage...

English 1-800-POWERON

Spanish 1-800-4APAGON

If you see a fallen power line or safety hazard involving our equipment, call Duke Energy at 1-800-POWERON and select Option 2 or contact your local emergency services immediately. Keep others away until help arrives. For your safety, do not touch a power line or anything touching a power line such as limbs, tools, and toys. Power lines that have fallen are dangerous and should not be moved

 

 

. Please contact us immediately.

If you have water issues during the severely cold weather, please call City hall at 466-7255 or the Claremont Police Department at 466-7265. Do not try to reach the maintenance crews they are busy keeping the roads checked for slippery situations.
