Is summer heat and winter cold something new ?

Maybe if these utility co. would spend more time upgrading their equip.and incr, their cap to meet todays needs this wouldn't happen as much

Got money for bonuses and naming rights for a football stadium.

This excuse is lame.Those people should have some legal rights.

This is living proof as to why it is imperative that this county has a qualified and experienced professional at the EMA. The people of this county are not prepared for an emergency disaster. This is what infuriates this more than anything. This is an electric company in the year 2013 and with the advanced technology they still have this happening? It is unacceptable. There has been already one electric company busted that intentional shut down electric grids just like this. They don't know what happened? REALLY? If I had been a commissioner I would be on that phone screaming to get to the bottom of this.

As for EMA, prepared? Hardly, those preparations plans and the emergency evacuation centers should have been up and running immediately. That should have been done three days before this even happened. Like she stated, most went off to find shelter with family and friends. Keyword...MOST well what about the ones that couldn't? Like the elderly. That was a real gamble

Guess management didn't see the forecast of a few days near zero.
