Two brothers were electrocuted and killed by a downed power line following storms that hit Forth Worth Texas on Wednesday, March 30th. The arcs from the power line also sparked a small grass fire nearby. The storm had produced tornadoes and left damage throughout the area 12 hours prior to the deaths. The electric company stated there is no way of knowing when a specific power line is down and there were so many down throughout the area, they were not able to make it to this particular one before this tragedy occurred.
This is a sad realization that people need to be cautious following storms regardless of how much time has passed. Fallen power lines are a main hazard that follows severe storms. Children, parents and adults need to stress and understand the importance of being aware of the hazards that follow severe weather and avoid any risk.
