low voltage

My power company had an electrical snafu this weekend and the incoming voltage was 68 for a period of 1-2 hours. I happened to be home and turned off the main breaker during this, but how how long before damage could occur to things like a fridge motor, or non dimmable led lights?

low voltage

It could be immediate. Check everything in your home and report anything not working to the POCO for reimbursement.
