MLGW advised on twitter that in any emergency situation, whether it's a tornado, ice storm, earthquake or flood, you need to be prepared for the possibility of temporary power outages.

For safety reasons, you should know where your gas and water shutoff valves are located, how to identify the main electric service panel and how to turn them off in the event of an emergency.You can see more on MLGW's website here.

In addition, MLGW will not be disconnecting any residential services Wednesday due to the wind chill factor.

If you need to report an outage or need more information then call 544-6500.
