TECO is reminding residents to stay away from downed wires. Assume all wires are power lines and assume they are energized.
Always assume that a downed power line is energized, and move away to safety. While some energized wires spark and snap, others may not appear dangerous.
Standing water can hide energized power lines or other hazards, or put you at risk of drowning.
