Jody Turner, Town Councilman, sent in the following comment. We felt it was so important that in addition to seeing this warning in Comments, we would post his statement.
“Berkeley Electric also wants to warn people to be careful around transformers–those green boxes along the roads. If standing water is close to one, DO NOT WALK IN IT. There are safeguards, but there is still a chance of electrical current in the water.”
Even in this weather, pets have to be walked, so please be cautious.
