Mississippi crews from the Coast and Northern divisions arrived in Mobile Thursday to assist Alabama Power in their restoration efforts following Hurricane Sally.
One hundred linemen and support personnel along with 90 additional contracted employees are working to restore service to customers in Mobile and the surrounding areas impacted by the storm.
“This is what we do best,” said Biloxi Engineering Supervisor Matt Fall. “We’re storm-tested, prepared and ready to help whoever needs it.”
Crews are currently working safely to repair broken poles and lines among a multitude of downed trees and other debris.
2020 has been a busy storm season for Mississippi Power. In the last six weeks, crews have safely traveled to Philadelphia, New York City, and most recently, Lake Charles to assist other utilities following damaging tropical systems.
