O&R Declares Storm Watch (Audio)

O&R has declared a Storm Watch in response to the weather forecast for thunderstorms, perhaps some severe, expected to hit our region late this afternoon and into this evening. Severe storm activity has the potential to cause power line damage and electric service interruptions. Some of the storms forecast today could pack high winds, heavy rain and even hail.
