The Cincinnati area helped south ahead of Hurricane Dorian Falls



Duke Energy sends 1,500 workers from Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana to Florida pending damages from Hurricane Dorian. About 40 workers gathered at the rest stop near Florence along I-75 for a pit stop before heading south. The fleet is like an army on wheels, with the help of people from a variety of careers, from wood graders to damage assessors. "Fuel is obviously in short supply when you get down there, so we send our own fuel trucks down to the bucket of our trucks," said Sally Thelen, of Duke Energy. We've already seen the devastation Dorian has left in parts of the Caribbean. "Whether it's a day or it's like in Puerto Rico, months, people need electricity to go through their daily routine, and we don't realize how inconvenient life is can be without it sometimes, "said Andre Adams, a district supervisor for Duke. Adams knows for the first time what it's like to wade in the worst of what a powerful storm can do and then try to help people get their lives back on track. "You see a lot of destruction and a lot of damage to the property and you see some people who are reluctant about the situation, but it brings the best out of you," Adams said. The plan is for the Duke teams to drive into Georgia on Friday, and then wait to move into areas of Florida affected by the storm.

"Whether it's a day, or if it's like in Puerto Rico, months, people need the power to go through their daily routine, and we don't realize how impractical life can be without it sometimes," Andre Adams said , district supervisor for Duke.

Adams knows firsthand what it's like to wade into the worst of what a powerful storm can do and then try to help people get their lives back on track.

"You see a lot of destruction and a lot of property damage, and you see some people who are reluctant about the situation, but it brings out the best of you," Adams said.
