Whether you’re on the road or at home, storms and extreme weather events can create electrical hazards you should be aware of.
ON THE ROAD
During storms, there are a number of electrical hazards you can encounter on the road. Remember to put your safety first when traveling during stormy weather.
You should be careful when traveling in any storm situation. Heavy rain, strong winds or wet snow are particularly adept at toppling trees, which can damage power equipment and create hazardous situations.
If you notice a power line in the road, keep your distance. There is no way to tell if the line is energized or not. Never drive near, under or over a downed power line. Call Eversource and stay away from the hazard until officials make the area safe for everyone.
Be especially cognizant of a fallen tree touching a power line. In this dangerous situation, power can travel through the tree and into anything the tree is touching, including the ground itself. Make sure to keep your distance and call Eversource.
