So, the company advises residents and consumers affected to prepare for the outage in the best ways possible. First and foremost, they should charge and prepare all devices for emergency cases.

Another is to prepare all appliances and electronic devices that would be dangerous if electricity goes out suddenly.

Last but not the least is to make sure that everyone is safe. Most of the interruptions will take place in the morning. The real danger is that this outage will conspire with the heat that we are currently experiencing so being extra cautious won’t actually hurt.
