Here Are Some Helpful Tips if You Find Yourself in the Dark After Thursday’s Storm

Let’s talk about Thursday’s storm. The Seacoast may see some sleet and ice and the power may go out. First up, a tip of the hat to anyone who works emergency crews to restore power when it goes out. Thank you! Now, here are some helpful tips if you find yourself in the dark:

*Have some extra food and water on hand. Gallon size jugs of water and some non-perishable and easy to prepare food items are the best.

*Flashlights and extra batteries. Don’t use candles!

*Battery powered radio and extra batteries … to listen to WOKQ for the latest info of course!

*First aid kit and medications. If you or someone in the house have a daily pill routine, prepare a couple of days’ worth of doses so you’re not fumbling in the dark with pills and such.

*Charge your cell phone before the storm!

*Have an old fashioned (not cordless) phone plugged into a phone jack. Phone service can still work during a power outage.

*Extra cash and a full tank of gas. Get these before the storm of course.

*Never run a generator in, or near the house.

A little common sense goes a long way in these situations so be sure to stop and think about the moves you make during a power outage and stay safe!
