FirstEnergy Corp. utilities have sent 190 line workers and support personnel to Mobile, Alabama, to assist Alabama Power with restoration efforts following Hurricane Sally. Crews began leaving for Alabama Thursday, with all expected to begin work Saturday morning. Hurricane Sally made landfall Wednesday on the Gulf Coast as a Category 2 storm, with sustained winds of 100 mph. Heavy rain also has produced flooding in many areas, with many roads and bridges closed or impassable. This support effort continues FirstEnergy's long-standing tradition of assisting other electric companies during large-scale power outages. FirstEnergy crews recently returned home after providing power restoration assistance to utilities in Texas and Louisiana following Hurricane Laura in late August.
