4 things to do before a power outage

A High Wind Warning throughout the Portland and Vancouver Metro areas means your power outages are very possible Thursday.

Pacific Power is offering residents some suggestions on how to prepare for a potential power outage.

  • Charge up your mobile devices now
  • Pack an emergency outage kit with a flashlight, battery operated clock, extra batteries, non-perishable foods, a manual can opener, bottled water and blankets.
  • If a power outage occurs, check your fuses and circuit breakers
  • Set aside candles, a flame source, and stock wood ahead of time if you have a wood fire place

In the event of a power outage, stay away from downed power and utility lines.
