I took this photo from my next door neighbor’s front yard. How do I contact the power company about down power lines. It won’t be long before that line comes down. If there is a special number for down or damaged power lines. If so, please email the number or web link to me.

Note that the editor added a link to emergency numbers — that will help not only Richard but anyone else in the area who reads it (before the power goes out and their laptop batteries die, that is). A good example of public service journalism in action.
