Kissimmee Utility Authority crews are en route to Tallahassee this morning to assist with the restoration of power, following a day of severe weather that walloped the capital city on Sunday.
As part of its mutual-aid agreement with utilities throughout the state, KUA sent three crews and a convoy of vehicles and supplies to assist crews at Tallahassee’s electric utility. KUA will join visiting crews from Jacksonville, Jacksonville Beach and Ocala to help restore service to the remaining 7,000 customers still without power. The crews departed Kissimmee just before 8 a.m. this morning.
KUA crews are no stranger to Tallahassee, having spent eight, 16-hour days in September helping to rebuild the electric system following Hurricane Hermine.
Founded in 1901, KUA (https://kua.com) is Florida’s sixth largest community-owned utility powering 70,000 customers in Osceola County, Fla.
