LA FERIA – A La Feria man says being a vigilant customer for American Electric Power isn’t paying off.
Bob Gardner says nearly every day, the electricity flickers at his home. He says it may be a sign that there’s a threat too close to home.
Four months ago, Gardner called to report trees growing through and around power lines four. He tells us he’s still waiting for crews to resolve the issue.
