(Updated) Reminder: Be Prepared for Possible Power Outage Nov. 13-18, 2013Submitted by USA 2012 on Mon, 11/04/2013 - 03:40
Today is Nov. 13th! Federal power grid 'test drill' day?
Any updates or news?
Everyone have power?
Do you recall hearing about Federal government power grid test/drill Nov. 13-18, 2013? It could be nationwide, or just eastern U.S., or just east cost. When they turn the whole electrical system down at once, they do not know how long it will take to get everything back on, or if transformers will blow.
Best to be prepared.
Have drinkable water.
Have gas in your vehicles. (gas pumps won't work)
Have cash. (atms, credit/debit cards won't work)
Have corded phones (cordless phones won't work, cell phones limited)
Have flashlights and batteries.
Get plug-in emergency lights (like night-lights on automatic)
Have blankets, warm and water-resistant clothing and shoes
Pay attention to your daily needs and MAKE A LIST.
Don't forget special needs of babies, pets....the elderly, ill, and disabled.
Have your meds and Rxs filled.
