Families in Centre County affected by power outages

Local News
Just before three Monday afternoon Devon Auman in Howard got a call from his wife that the power in their house went out.
 
“We didn’t have heat, and so I rushed home and got the generator hooked up and our house was up and running,” Auman, said.

Though many families like Kayla Seese’s didn’t have a generator and were getting cold.

“It’s a little scary because we really don’t have anywhere else to go,” Seese, said.
 
Centre County Emergency Services says if your power goes out be patient with power companies,
“During these high winds the power companies cannot put their bucket trucks up in the air,” Jeff Wharran, Director for Centre County Emergency Services, said.

“During these high winds the power companies cannot put their bucket trucks up in the air, they have safety regulations that the wind gusts have to be below forty miles an hour before they can put their personnel up to repair these lines, Wharran, said.
 
Wharran, says if you’re going to use generators, don’t run them indoors.
 
Devon says it’s for times like these he bought a large generator.

“This is the main reason that I got one, as big as the size that I have, so in this situation my kids aren’t affected by the power outage and the cold weather.”
