East Central Energy says trees are still weighed down by last week’s snow. ECE forestry crews and contractors have been out, addressing high-risk trees that could pose an outage risk, but it is impossible to know what kind of situations will arise.

They advise you to limit travel plans, watch out for downed lines, stock up on necessities and use generators safely.

Regular outage updates will be shared on ECE’s Facebook page.
