Central Hudson warning: High wind may cause power outages

POUGHKEEPSIE – Area residents should be ready for the possibility severe weather and dangerous conditions on Saturday with the potential for falling trees and electric service interruptions, Central Hudson Gas and Electric Corporation officials said.

"Weather forecasts call for the likelihood of high winds in our area on Saturday," said Paul Haering, the senior vice president of Engineering and Operations.  "Central Hudson is preparing equipment and crews, and our customers, too, should take precautions.”

Sustained winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts as high as 60 mph, combined with heavily saturated ground from rainfall last night and today, may cause trees and limbs to fall onto power lines and interrupt electric service.
