BEL has an electronic notification list, but it seems very difficult for them to maintain it. You can be on it for a while and then stop getting notices - you can ask and ask and ask to get on the list and sometimes it works. You can be told by a very nice person that you should watch tv instead or listen to Reef Radio. Reef Radio does not come very far north, and Cable tv is only now being installed.
IMHO this is getting ridiculous.

hi Natalie -
Strange - The outages were not cancelled in Mata Grande.
the power was out yesterday from 9-3.
I'll get back on Cindy's list somehow - I used to be there.

I just called BEL's emergency hotline to confirm what today's plan is. They said YES, there WILL be an outage - all properties north of the river - from 9 am - 2 pm.

Let's see what happens - it's curiouser and curiouser.

But definitely take your shower before 9 am, and have your cellulr phone charged.
