Storm Damage in Aitkin?

11/10/2021 (Permalink)

A room is lit by a camping lantern during a power outage. We clean and restore storm damage in Aitkin County.

We get lots of storms and severe weather in Aitkin each year. Heavy winds blow trees over, storms compromise powerlines, and power outages result. SERVPRO® of Aitkin, Carlton & West St. Louis Counties offers these tips from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for preparing for a power outage:

Take an inventory of the items you need that rely on electricity.

  • Plan for batteries and other alternative power sources to meet your needs when the power goes out, such as a portable charger or power bank
  • Have flashlights for every household member
  • Determine whether your home phone will work in a power outage and how long battery backup will last

Know your medical needs.

  • Talk to your medical provider about a power outage plan for medical devices powered by electricity and refrigerated medicines
  • Find out how long medication can be stored at higher temperatures and get specific guidance for any medications that are critical for life

Food Storage

  • Have enough nonperishable food and water
  • Keep freezers and refrigerators closed
  • Use coolers with ice if necessary
  • Monitor temperatures with a thermometer
  • Throw out food if the temperature is 40 degrees or higher
