Power crews all across Shreveport-Bossier have spent the week performing maintenance on power lines and trimming trees to try to prevent as many outages as possible.
"We have been preparing since the weekend for this storm," said Kacee Kirschvink with Swepco.
Kirschvink says trees are some of the main causes of power outages and this year's drought makes the problem even worse.
"There are so many dead trees in this area. It does not take much for the wind to blow for the power to go out," said Kirschvink.
Authorities say when the winds are stronger than forty miles per hour, crews cannot work in bucket trucks.
If the power does go out, authorities ask people to stay calm and be patient until crews can safely restore it.
