...POTENTIAL FOR POWER OUTAGES...

THE COMBINATION OF GUSTY NORTHWEST WINDS...AND ANY ICE THAT
REMAINS ON TREES...MAY RESULT IN FALLING TREE BRANCHES THIS
AFTERNOON. THIS MAY ALSO RESULT IN SCATTERED POWER OUTAGES.
NORTHWEST WINDS OF 10 TO 15 MPH WITH GUSTS OF 20 TO 25 MPH WILL BE
COMMON THIS AFTERNOON. UNTIL THE ICE COMPLETELY MELTS OFF THE
TREES...THE COMBINATION OF THE EXTRA WEIGHT FROM THE ICE AND THE
WIND WILL BE A HAZARDOUS CONCERN.

IF TRAVELING...WATCH OUT FOR FALLING TREE LIMBS ONTO THE HIGHWAY.
IF A TREE FALLS ACROSS A POWER LINE...PLEASE REPORT IT TO YOUR
UTILITY SERVICE PROVIDER. FOR YOUR SAFETY...DO NOT STEP ON...OR
TRY TO CROSS DOWNED POWER LINES.
