    Question: How may power outages occur because of palm fronds or your friendly neighborhood squirrels. Answer: Tons more than balloons. Why don’t you advocate for outlawing palm trees and squirrels. Picture has nothing to do with the incident you cite. Lazy reporting, do your job and report the facts, not your opinions.
