The conditions can cause tree limbs and power lines to break.

Traffic accidents involving power poles are also more likely.

Duke says some of its customers could be without power for days.

The cold puts high stress on equipment and icy roads may prevent trucks from getting places.

If you are a Duke customer and your power goes out, there are a couple ways to report the problem.

You can text the word "OUT" to 57801.

You can also call the company's automated system.

That number is 800-343-3525.

Or you can go online and report an outage at duke-energy.com/winterstorm.

A map showing all current outages can also be seen there.
