Alabama Power on standby ahead of Hurricane Ian

TUSCALOOSA- Alabama Power is already on standby for Hurricane Ian making landfall.

Storm crews have been watching the hurricane ever since it came on the radar. They want to make sure they have a plan if any weather threats impact the state.

Crews are currently located in Birmingham and will leave for affected areas once it is safe to do so. If Alabama doesn’t require much manpower, the company will cross state lines.

“Our storm team is prepared and right now as long as we don’t have any impact to our Alabama Power customers, we are planning to head to Georgia to support our sister company Georgia Power with restoration efforts because they will be impacted by this storm,” said Alabama Power spokesperson Michelle Tims.
