Florida Power Crews Travel North to Assist After Florence

A convoy of power crews from Tampa, Florida, utility TECO rolled north through Georgia on Wednesday, September 12, ready to assist after Hurricane Florence comes ashore later in the week.

These crews were on Interstate 95 in Savannah Wednesday morning.

The National Weather Service issued strong warnings to residents of the Carolinas and mid-Atlantic states, saying the hurricane would be the “storm of a lifetime,” bringing damaging winds, life-threatening storm surges, and “catastrophic flooding.”
