“Power outages might last between 12-18 hours. Currently, we don’t know when this will begin,” stated First Site on their website.

They advise residents to vacate buildings if they confirm power outages, as they will have no heat or water. Residents are advised to stay with friends or family and to reach out to the company if hotel accommodations are necessary.

“We recommend staying with friends or family this weekend. If you need hotel accommodations, please contact our office for more information,” stated the company.

In anticipation, the company will turn off the water supply to the buildings on the list above starting at 1:30 p.m. Feb 12. In an effort to prevent the water lines from freezing and bursting in the apartments. They plan to open them up as soon as they receive information from Town of Normal.
