Hurricane Florence is expected to cause major damage as it hits landfall tomorrow and Alabama Power is gearing up and ready to support. According to a spokesman for Alabama Power, crews are heading towards the Carolinas to support Duke Energy Electric Company. 250 to 350 lineman from all over the state of Alabama left earlier this afternoon to safely stage in areas closer along the east coast.
Alabama Power works to balance crew availability to assist in storm restoration while also ensuring customers at home are not negatively affected. Rebuilding energy infrastructure may be needed to restore power as Florence is projected to be a category four hurricane.
