Our thoughts and prayers are with the crews of Air Evac Lifeteam.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the crews of Air Evac Lifeteam.Air Evac Lifeteam is heartbroken to report that three crew members have perished in an incident that occurred on Saturday, January 20. At 11:23 pm local time AEL's Operations Control Center (OCC) lost contact with the aircraft, a Bell 206L3 with call sign N295AE. The crew is based out of Weatherford, OK, and was returning to base after completing a patient care transport in Oklahoma City when the OCC lost contact with them. Nearby AEL teams assisted local law enforcement with the search.

Our primary focus is on supporting the families and our team members. CISM teams have been sent to assist our team members during this time. Please reach out if you would like to speak with them. At this time, we are not sharing the names of the crew members aboard the flight. We ask that you respect the privacy of our team members and their families, and please do not share their names. AEL has turned over the scene and investigation to the NTSB. ... See MoreSee Less

I hope they had liability insurance, that’s a big blow for a business. Though it’s awesome that no one got hurt!

I am glad nobody was hurt, I am so sorry for the business owner.

FROZEN WATER PIPES:

If you have frozen pipes in your home or business , now is the time to locate your water meter . Turn off the water at the meter and as temperatures rise and pipes thaw out , you can turn the water meter back on and check for burst pipes. This may save you from extensive damage , if you happen to not be at home when the pipes thaw out . If you do have a pipe burst and have no way of turning off the water to your home , you may call 911 and request the fire department to assist you . ... See MoreSee Less

Thanks for advice.

We did that with a certain water company .. I turned off the meter when I saw it leaking water ... only turned water back on to check if repairs worked .. ... got billed 300 plus - TWICE with the meter turned off ... I had it turned off at the office and hauled my water in

Thank you to all of those out working this this bad weather.

News Release from ERCOT:

News Release from ERCOT:This just in from ERCOT:

NEWS RELEASE Jan. 14, 2024 ERCOT Expects Tight Grid Conditions, Requests Conservation Monday, January 15, from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. CT (Austin, TX) – Due to continued freezing temperatures, very high demand, and unseasonably low wind, operating reserves are expected to be low during the morning hours of Monday, January 15, prior to the solar ramp up. As a result, ERCOT is asking Texans to conserve electricity use, if safe to do so, Monday, January 15, from 6 a.m. – 10 a.m. CT. ERCOT is expecting similar conditions on Tuesday, January 16, and will continue to closely monitor conditions and keep the public informed through our communication channels.Tomorrow’s conservation appeal does not indicate ERCOT is experiencing emergency conditions at this time. ERCOT will remain vigilant and communicate further if conditions change because of continued freezing temperatures and very high demand in the morning hours. At this time, if you are experiencing an outage, it is local in nature and not related to overall grid reliability. Please check with your local electric provider for more information.Conservation is a widely used industry tool that can help lower demand for a specific period of peak demand time, which is typically during the morning hours in winter.ERCOT is requesting all government agencies (including city and county offices) to implement all programs to reduce energy use at their facilities until at least 10am tomorrow.ERCOT continues to use additional tools to manage the grid reliably, including using reserve power, calling upon reductions by large electric customers that have volunteered to lower their energy use, and bringing more generation online sooner. ERCOT is also working with out-of-state Independent System Operators (ISOs) and Market Participants to obtain additional power generation capacity, if available. ERCOT has obtained Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) enforcement discretion, which allows a generator to extend its service/run-time/operations to help meet demand, if needed, and maintain grid reliability. Energy-saving tips can be found on the TXANS webpage at ercot.com/txans.Why the Request to Reduce Usage?Weather. Most of Texas is seeing extremely cold temperatures for an extended period of time.Demand. Texas is experiencing record breaking demand due to the cold weather.Solar. Solar generation isn't available in the early morning hours, which is a peak demand time during winter, and slowly ramps up as the sun rises.Wind. Wind generation is forecasted to be lower than seasonally expected in the early morning hours.Peak DemandIn 2023, January peak demand reached 65,632 MW, with the current all-time peak demand record of 85,508 MW set on August 10, 2023. The all-time winter peak demand record of 74,525 MW was set December 23, 2022, in the 7-8 a.m. hour during Winter Storm Elliott.Consumer AssistancePublic Utility Commission of Texas Hotline: 1-888-782-8477 Stay UpdatedSign up for TXANS notifications on the TXANS webpage.Download the ERCOT Mobile App for additional notifications: iOS | Android.Monitor real-time and extended conditions at ercot.com.Subscribe to ERCOT Emergency Alerts, which are not sent through TXANS notifications.Follow ERCOT on Twitter (@ERCOT_ISO), Facebook (Electric Reliability Council of Texas), and LinkedIn (ERCOT).

Saw this one coming!!🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

We will pay for this one too.

Gee what a surprise. Build more nukes!

Should have fixed the grid maybe? Thanks, Greg!

Maybe we should invest in reliable energy instead of wind & solar that only produce when the wind is blowing and the sun is shining! Smdh

The Governor and the head of Ercot spent the last two days saying we would be fine. “We have adequate power available”. Just BS as usual.

Shannon Elizabeth Janeczko

No! I want to live!! 🥶🥴

ERCOT can ingest a bag of richards

Shut down the damn bitcoin operations!

green energy is a scam, now its an excuse for failures in power grid management?

Tri County Electric fraud. Ceo was fired. Bought gold pens, gold watches, season foot ball tickets to Tcu, Vacations, Plane tickets and Star Wars Toys all on the company credit card. Even forged singutures to get his own pay raise. www.facebook.com/groups/638435194322753/permalink/724811389018466/
