Liberty Utilities announces late last night that Rolling Blackouts in their Power Service might be a possibility today. Already, several areas have experienced Blackouts this morning.
Areas from Downtown Branson north have been without power for a time this morning. The complete Statement from Liberty is below:
We just received word from the Southwest Power Pool that they have moved to Energy Emergency Alert (EEA) Level 3. Liberty customers may be impacted by required controlled service interruptions. Should additional service interruptions be required, we will interrupt service in blocks throughout our electric system. We will work to keep the duration of these interruptions down to approximately one hour per block. We will do all we can to minimize the impact. We are asking all of our customers to safely conserve energy through midnight tonight, Tuesday, February 16. We will provide outage updates as they become available. Because of the rapidly changing nature of this emergency, we will not be able to alert customers individually regarding required service interruptions. We are asking our customers to prepare in advance. #peakalert #libertyoutageupdate
