Duke Energy deploying additional 130 workers for Hurricane Irma to help restore power in north Florida

Duke Energy is deploying 130 additional resources from Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana to Florida to help with restoration efforts from Hurricane Irma.

Duke Energy and its contractor crews  will be gathering at the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s rest area along I-75 Southbound.

Crews will be lining up to leave the area at approximately 9:30 a.m., with line crews that specialize in working on bulk transmission power systems.

They will be heading to Reddick, Florida, which is just north of Ocala. Once there, they will be dispatched to the hardest hit areas to help restore power in the region.

These crews will be in addition to the 1,400 midwest Duke Energy resources that departed for Hurricane Irma work over the weekend, who are currently deployed in north Florida.
