    Great that City Power is ready. Has anyone informed the countless numbers living in the middle of (for now) dry river beds or on the edge of creeks & streams that are about to turn into raging rivers?

      they have forgotten about those people living on the edge again,How do you contact people that don't have some sort of contact, like a cell phone at least.Every year same story.Emergency services are there to co-ordinate or not?
