DALLAS (1080 KRLD) – With freezing temperatures, ice and high winds you can expect power outages all across the North Texas area. Oncor says if your power goes out, call them right away so they can take care of the problem, but be patient…They’ll get to you as soon as they can.
Second, if you see a downed power line immediately call 911, and be sure to keep others away.
Third, if you must use a space heater, make sure it’s at least 3 feet away from any materials in your home… and don’t forget to turn them off when you leave the room.
And finally, be a good neighbor. Check in on any elderly or sick neighbors to make sure they’re safe.
