However, SWEPCO is on the scene working to restore that power as we speak. We are encouraging our citizens to shelter in place. However, this storm is not over. We are still under a tornado warning until midnight tonight. So, we are encouraging our citizens to stay home and stay safe,” stated SPD Corporal Christopher Bordelon.
