Duke Energy staging thousands of personnel ready to respond to Hurricane Ian

USA, Florida: Duke Energy is mobilizing nearly 10,000 lineworkers, damage assessment and support personnel to safe locations in its Florida service areas.

With Hurricane Ian’s imminent landfall expected along Florida’s west coast, Duke Energy is increasing the number of resources coming to Florida and urging customers to take steps to prepare for power outages.

Duke Energy meteorologists are continuing to track the storm and will continue making adjustments to those resources as the storm approaches.

In addition to making safety a priority, customers should also prepare for extended power outages. Despite extensive system improvements and rigorous tree trimming, strong winds, wind-blown debris and flooding can cause power outages. When outages occur, the company has disclosed, it will be primarily committed to restoring power as safely and quickly as possible, while keeping customers informed throughout the process.

The company will focus on restoring power in a sequence that enables power restoration to public health and safety facilities and to the greatest number of customers as safely and quickly as possible.
