Public Power Crews Deploy in Advance of Dorian’s Arrival

Networks have deployed crews to the Carolinas, Georgia and Florida

Public power utility crews arrived in Florida and other parts of the Southeast over the past several days in advance of Hurricane Dorian making landfall in the U.S. Other out of state crews were on standby as the ultimate trajectory of the system remained unclear as of Monday morning.

Dorian slammed into the Bahamas on Sunday, Sept. 1 with winds of 185 miles per hour and continued to hammer the Bahamas as a Category 5 hurricane on Sept. 2.

“Hurricane Dorian has now stalled, continuing its Category 5 siege of the northwestern Bahamas, but will track dangerously close to a long swath of the East Coast from Florida to Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and southeastern Virginia this week,” the Weather Channel reported on Sept. 2.
