[ARCHIVED] What Causes an Outage?

2019_NorcrossWebsite_NewsflashIcons6

If you’re wondering why the recent power outages, when the ground becomes too wet, the structural integrity of a tree’s root system can be compromised. Think of it as tree roots trying to hold up the entire tree in a bowl of soupy mud. There just might not be enough structural support to keep the tree upright. Additionally, tree roots can suffocate, as the air pockets have vanished & are now holding water. Throw in strong winds and your huge tree can topple over right from the base. When falling trees land on the power lines, an outage occurs. 
This explanation has been provided by the city's Land Development Inspector/Arborist, Daniel Tew.
