Our Crew helping out in Florida enjoying some fried gator! #publicpower #lakelandelectric
One group responds to electrical emergencies. The other responds to gator emergencies. But for one evening, the two became one as they sat down to a true Florida feast.
In the face of one of the largest storms to ever hit Florida, we came together in preparedness, response and recovery efforts, and shined a light on just how resilient our community is. Thank you to our hard-working crews here at home, the dedicated staff behind the scenes and our many mutual aid partners who worked tirelessly to restore Tallahassee. #ThePowerofOurCommunity #IrmaTLH

Good Tuesday Evening,
So far the bulk of the heavy rains have been confined to the extreme Southeastern portions of our region.
The SPC is most likely going to issue a Tornado Watch in the next couple of hours and we have the outline of the area they are considering for the Watch. That Watch will include New Orleans and Slidell.
We are also seeing Tropical Storm force winds of 40+ mph in and around the New Orleans area, mainly just to it's East and South of the city and down to the coast. Significant winds are also being recorded offshore as well as you can see from the two graphics which show the recorded wind gusts as of about 9:45pm.
Tropical Storm Cindy has in fact strengthened and below is the latest from the NHC on Cindy:

DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
At 1000 PM CDT (0300 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Cindy was located near latitude 26.4 North, longitude 91.0 West. Cindy is moving toward the northwest near 7 mph (11 km/h), and this motion is expected to continue through Wednesday. A turn toward the north-northwest and then toward the north is expected Wednesday night and early Thursday. On the forecast track, the center of Cindy will approach the coast of southwest Louisiana and southeast Texas late Wednesday and Wednesday night, and move inland over southeastern Texas on Thursday.
Reports from an Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft and
nearby ships indicate that maximum sustained winds have increased to near 60 mph (95 km/h) with higher gusts. Little change in strength is expected on Wednesday. Slight weakening is forecast to begin on Thursday.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 275 miles (445 km), mainly north through northeast of the center.
The minimum central pressure recently reported by the reconnaissance aircraft was 997 mb (29.44 inches).
HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
RAINFALL: Cindy is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 6 to 9 inches with isolated maximum amounts of 12 inches over southeastern Louisiana, southern Mississippi, southern Alabama, and the Florida Panhandle through Thursday. This rainfall could cause life-threatening flash flooding in these areas.
Rainfall amounts of 3 to 5 inches with isolated maximum amounts of 6 inches can be expected farther west across southwest Louisiana into southeast Texas through Thursday.
WIND: Tropical storm conditions are expected to first reach the
coast within the warning area overnight and spread westward
within the warning area through early Thursday.

TORNADOES: Isolated tornadoes are possible tonight into Wednesday from southern Louisiana to the Florida Panhandle.
Next intermediate advisory at 100 AM CDT.
Next complete advisory at 400 AM CDT.
Please share, let's help a fellow lineman and his family out in their time of need. Rickey Zimmerman was injured while working on downed powerline in Winnfield, LA.
City of Winnfield employees have organized a T-Shirt fundraiser for Rickey Zimmerman and his family. All proceeds will be given directly to the family to assist with transportation, lodging, and other expenses while Rickey is in the hospital in Shreveport. All orders for "Team Zimmerman" shirts should be placed using the link below. You may pay to have them shipped to you directly, or you may select to pick them up in Winnfield at City Hall at no extra charge (someone will notify you when they arrive). Please consider ordering a shirt or two to show your support for Rickey and his family!

Tommy's Tees empowers anyone to raise awareness and funds for a cause, loved one, group or project through campaigns driven by sales of custom-designed/cause-branded merchandise.
With the summer months up ahead, please remember hurricane season is fast approaching. Hurricanes are among nature’s most powerful and destructive phenomena. If you live in an area prone to hurricanes, you need to be prepared. Even areas well away from the coastline can be threatened by dangerous flooding, destructive winds and tornadoes from these storms.
Stock up!!! You’re going to need supplies not just to get through the storm but for the potentially lengthy and unpleasant aftermath. Have enough non-perishable food, water and medicine to last each person in your family a minimum of one week. Electricity and water could be out for at least that long. You’ll need extra cash, a battery-powered radio and flashlights. Many of us have cell phones, and they all run on batteries. You’re going to need a portable, crank or solar powered USB charger.
Another good tip!! Call your insurance company or agent and ask for an insurance check-up to make sure you have enough homeowners insurance to repair or even replace your home. Don’t forget coverage for your car or boat. Remember, standard homeowners insurance doesn’t cover flooding. Act now as flood insurance requires a 30-day waiting period.
To all the lineman out there this is your day! Thank you for your bravery, hard work, and for keeping the lights on. #thankalineman
Power Line Safety after the Storm
Severe weather happens year-round. Tornadoes, hurricanes and other storms can seriously damage power lines and other electrical equipment. Storm damage causes dangers that lurk after a storm has passed.
When you see power lines on the ground following a storm, stay away, warn others to stay away and contact 911 and your local electric utility company. Lines do not have to be arcing or sparking to be live. Any utility wire, including telephone or cable lines sagging or down could be in contact with an energized power line making they also very dangerous, so stay away from all of them.
Be alert to the possibility that tree limbs or debris may hide an electrical hazard. A downed power line can energize things around it, such as chain link fences and metal culverts.
Keep in mind that a line that’s indeed “dead” could become energized during power restoration efforts or improper use of generators.
Stay safe and be aware of your surroundings after a storm! Be sure to inform your children of these hazards too!
Please pray for the safety of all the line crews out working these storms!!
Crawfish Boil! Thank you for all your hard work!
