If you were cooking when the power went out, turn off the stove, and all other appliances right away. Downed powerlines and flooding create electrical hazards in and around your home. Remember to stay back at least 10 metres (or the length of a school bus) from a downed powerline and call 9-1-1 and Lakeland Power immediately to report it. Stay out of your basement if flood water is higher than the electrical outlets, baseboard heaters, furnace or near the electrical panel. Call Lakeland Power at (705) 789-5442 immediately to have power disconnected.
