As Tropical Storm Gordon approaches the Gulf Coast this evening, the likelihood of power outages is expected to increase due to high winds. Baldwin EMC crews will respond to outages this afternoon and evening as long as it is safe to do so. If conditions become unsafe, crews will take shelter and begin working again when the winds subside.
Three ways to report an outage:
◾Phone: call (251) 989-6247
◾Text: text “Baldwin” and then “Outage” to 85700
◾Online: visit baldwineme.com/outage-center, then click the link for the interactive outage map and log in using your Facebook account.
Everyone is encouraged to stay indoors in a safe place while Tropical Storm Gordon passes through our area. If you must be out during the storm, watch for downed power lines and assume any line on the ground is energized and dangerous. Call Baldwin EMC at (251) 989-6247 to report a downed power line.
