In anticipation of Hurricane Dorian’s Florida landfall, PPL Electric Utilities is sending workers, trucks and equipment to support Florida Power and Light and Duke Energy Florida in responding to expected outages.

Nearly 50 people are driving to Florida to assist in the efforts. PPL crews are expected to arrive in Florida Saturday evening.

Our crews are often called to help restore power in other regions as part of mutual assistance agreements. Most recently, our crews assisted PECO with outages in the Philadelphia area. Our crews also went to Puerto Rico to help restore power after Hurricane Maria and went to Florida after Hurricane Irma.

We’re proud to lend a hand to what could be a massive power restoration effort.

Our thoughts are with the people of Florida as they brace for the storm.
