Watch for downed powerlines
September 11, 2017 – As powerlines are in the process of being re-energized, Flagler County officials caution residents to use extreme caution as electric lines become live.
“This can be a very dangerous situation,” Flagler County Administrator Craig Coffey said. “The weather has improved, but it is still a very fluid situation and we don’t want our residents to be complacent about safety.”
Power should be cut off to homes that have structural damage. Residents should ensure power is off at the box to avoid electrical hazards as lines become re-energized.
As always, treat every downed powerline as live until FP&L confirms otherwise.
