Safety alert: Possible Rolling Power Outages
Due to the strain on the power grid during this excessive heat, the CA Grid Operator may call for rolling power outages. To lessen the stress on the electrical grid, from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. avoid using large appliances like dishwashers, washing machines, and dryers. Set the A/C to 78 degrees or higher if health permits. Turn off unneeded lights and close blinds and curtains.
Prepare for power outages by charging your devices and having a flashlight on hand.
During an outage, avoid opening your refrigerator to keep food cold. If traffic lights are out, treat intersections as 4-way stops.
The City of San José has activated 3 Cooling Centers Friday-Sunday, August 14-16 from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Camden Community Center, Mayfair Community Center and Roosevelt Community Center. Residents who visit a cooling center must follow all county guidelines.
