BIPCO issues storm warning

BIPCo President Jeffery Wright issued the following weather update for Thursday, Aug. 27:

Be “weather aware” this afternoon as these storms approach. A tornado watch was just issued for us and although right now it appears the worst of it will pass to the west of us, we can expect some winds, possible hail, dangerous lightning, and the possibility of water spout or tornado.

If you lose power call us at 466-5851. You may reach our back-up call center after 4:30 p.m., but that’s the most thorough way to get us the info that will help us in responding.

Be safe. Never approach a down wire.
