O&R Prepares for Potentially Severe Storm

O&R Prepares for Potentially Severe Storm

 Orange and Rockland Utilities is preparing to mobilize its emergency response workforce to repair potential damage and restore possible power outages that could result from strong gusty winds, scattered showers, and isolated thunderstorms throughout the region between 3 – 11 p.m. tonight into early Tuesday morning.

These potential thunderstorms could pose a significant threat to electric service because their associated high winds and lightning strikes contribute to downing trees, tree limbs, and overhead electric lines --- all of which could interfere with the safe, reliable delivery of electric service.

O&R company and contractor overhead line crews, tree removal experts, customer service operators, and the rest of the O&R emergency response team will be activated and ready to respond to emergencies beginning early this afternoon.
