If one did not switch off the socket, if the power is back the currents will be flowing to the device in use, and if the device happens to be something like a microwave with food, there are high chances that it will explode and catch fire. This is another type of accident that occurs in the kitchen and mostly during the night. To avoid this type of accident to happen at home, always switch off electrical appliances when not in use.
