Power Outages in New Smyrna Beach continue to plague the city.
Tonight, swaths of the city including Businesses on Flagler Ave like Tayton O’Brians and areas North of the Airport are or have been without power.
Keep freezers and refrigerators closed.
Use a generator, but ONLY outdoors and away from windows.
Do not use a gas stove or oven to heat your home.
Disconnect appliances and electronics to avoid damage from electrical surges.
Have alternate plans for refrigerating medicines or using power-dependent medical devices.
Check with local officials about heating and cooling locations open near you.
In one phone call we were told this was due to squirrels, there is definitely something squirrely about this issue. Recently the Asplundh Tree service was seen trimming around neighborhoods. This has not seemingly fixed the outages.
