Monsoon Season 2016
We had quite a monsoon season last year, and and another is on its
way this month, so be forewarned, forearmed, and ready to recover should
disaster strike.The high winds and lightning strikes typical of mountain monsoons can
damage power lines or poles and cause interruptions of power. Lightning
can even directly strike a power substation or a transformer on a pole
and cause power to fail nearby or miles away from the strike. Flash
floods can damage equipment or cause facilities to shut down for safety
reasons, and downed trees can take out utilities. In extreme situations,
utility crews may be stretched so thin that responses to calls take
hours to resolve. Although nature controls the narrative in these instances, you still have control to keep you and your information safe.
