Indiana Michigan Power is helping provide mutual assistance to its sister company, Kentucky Power, after catastrophic flooding disrupted electricity to its 21,000 customers.
More than 80 I&M line workers, damage assessors, forestry experts, support staff and business partners are in-route to eastern Kentucky. Crews will work 16-hour days in the treacherous terrain to restore electricity to impacted communities to help further recovery efforts.
Mutual assistance crews will work around washed out and debris stricken roads, standing water, numerous downed trees and hilly terrain to restore power.
I&M crews from South Bend/Elkhart, southwest Michigan, Fort Wayne, Marion and Muncie will join more than 450 Kentucky Power employees, business partners and mutual assistance crews in Kentucky.
Crews will set new power poles, string new power lines and repair equipment until the last impacted customer is restored to service.
