Town prepares for power outages

We anticipate Florence to hit Highlands as a hurricane or tropical storm on Sunday afternoon or night. The town will be staging electrical crews in anticipation of wide spread power outages. If these outages occur Macon County Emergency Management asks people to not call 911 or the non-emergency number. Lines need to be open for life saving emergencies. The town electric department will monitor the power grid and respond to outages as soon as possible. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation.

Patrick Taylor, Mayor
Highlands, N.C.
