AEP Mobilizes Hundreds Of Workers For Expected Outages
American Electric Power says hundreds of line workers are headed to Ohio and other states likely to see effects from Hurricane Sandy.
AEP spokeswoman Melissa McHenry says they’re mobilized between 300 and 400 workers from more-western states like Texas and Oklahoma.
“They’ve been talking about this storm for some time, and they went ahead and mobilized crews. And especially once the indications were that it was going to have an impact on our operations in West Virginia, Virginia and Ohio, we made sure that we would have additional crews,” McHenry says.
The weather has already led to canceled flights out of Columbus, Dayton, Cleveland and Cincinnati. Forecasters are calling for winds of up to 60 miles per hour in parts of central Ohio tonight and into tomorrow.
