It can be a scary event on Cape Cod when treacherous thunder storms strike. Typically, when this happens, lots of power outages occur. If you are a local resident or business who experienced no electricity due to trees falling or heavy rain, it is important to seek safe shelter.</

At the end of August, 93% of Brewster was without power and 70% of Orleans was without power. The mainland over the bridge was also hit hard, as Wareham had 90% of homes without power, Yarmouth at 57%, and Barnstable at 68%. Safety shelters opened up at Nauset, D-Y and Falmouth High School. If people were struggling to reach shelters, they could call their local Fire Departments.

In the future, if you need to report an electrical outage, call 899-592-2000. It is better to be safe than sorry. Although most people think about the safety of their loved ones during such a disaster, have you thought about how your company would respond?
