Help is available through the North Dakota Department of Human Services for those impacted by the extended power outage in northwest North Dakota following the April 22-23 blizzard and ice storm.

As utility companies continue to work overtime to restore power to customers, this assistance can provide a measure of relief for eligible renters and homeowners who have needed to run generators or rent hotel rooms until service is restored.

With the large amount of snow we have received in the area there is the possibility of localized septic system flooding issues. We recommend you consult with a septic installer if you are having issues. There is a list of licensed installers on our websitehttps://www.umdhu.org/usrfiles/resources/Copy_of_sc_for_website.pdf . Here is more information on how to care for your flooded system. https://www.ag.ndsu.edu/news/newsreleases/2011/july-11-2011/don2019t-overwork-flooded-septic-systems/ The most important part is to not pump the tank while the ground water levels are high and to give the septic system a rest.

WFD responded to a call this morning; a generator being run indoors and two individuals are in critical condition.

If you're still without power or know someone who is and you’re using a generator, ❗PLEASE use the generator appropriately to avoid carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning!❗CO is an odorless and colorless gas that can kill you. The most common symptoms of CO poisoning are headache, dizziness, weakness, upset stomach, vomiting, chest pain, and confusion. It it is possible for CO levels to be so high that unconsciousness and death can occur without warning and disorientation can prevent recognition of CO.

If you have a generator and are using it as a temporary power solution, please understand (and share!!) the risks and rules:

✅Generators should be used in well-ventilated locations OUTSIDE at least 5 feet (1.5 meters) away from all doors, windows, and vent openings. Measure the 5-feet distance from the generator exhaust system to the building.

✅NEVER use a generator in an attached garage, even with the door open.

✅Place generators so that the fumes can’t enter the home through windows, doors, or other openings (have the exhaust system directed away from the building).

✅Install carbon monoxide alarms in your home. Follow instructions for correct placement and mounting height.

✅Turn off generators and let them cool before refueling. NEVER refuel while one is hot.

✅Store generator fuel in a container appropriately labeled for that purpose and store containers outside of living areas.

For more information on using generators safely at home, please visit: 👉 https://www.fema.gov/fact-sheet/use-generators-safely-home
