Mississippians send help ahead of Hurricane Florence

Telesouth Communications

Mississippi is already working to help those who will be affected by Hurricane Florence. The Category 4 hurricane is expected to make landfall somewhere on the southeast or Mid-Atlantic coast Thursday night.

The Alabama-Louisiana-Mississippi Division of the Salvation Army is sending personnel and equipment to support the organization’s response efforts for Hurricane Florence. The Division will be sending five mobile feeding units initially with four of the trucks scheduled to leave on Sept. 11th

In a release, Entergy Mississippi announced that they will send 90 distribution line workers and support help (50 Entergy employees and 40 contract workers) along with 12 scouts to the East Coast to help restore power following the anticipated widespread damage by Hurricane Florence.

Entergy Mississippi crews are assigned to South Carolina Electric and Gas Company. However, should tropical storms affect the Entergy region, the company reassured customers that they have the ability to call back crews to assist with restoration work.

The help comes as part of a long-standing mutual assistance agreement by which utilities help one another out in times of need. When requested by a utility company, Entergy operating companies will send what workers they can spare while keeping enough at home to meet the day-to-day needs of Entergy customers.
