Water and electricity a lethal mix

/ (CIQB FM) B101

More rain and snow expected this weekend and that means the chance of more flooding.

Earl Davison of the Electrical Safety Authority expects another weekend of emergency calls.

They were very busy during the ice storm and he suspects this will be a weekend with flooding in the Gray-Bruce and Parry Sound/Muskoka areas.

Davison says stay out of your basement if you suspect water has risen above the level of electrical outlets or your furnace.

The best idea is  is to call a licensed electrical contractor to deal with it.

Always remember water and electricity are a lethal mix.
