September 3, 2019 - Duke Energy (NYSE: DUK) has put nearly 6,500 transmission and distribution personnel in place to support power restoration in the wake of Hurricane Dorian. That's nearly three times the typical number of crews in the state, a news release said. Crew resources are being staged in safe locations in The Villages, Davenport and Clearwater to be ready to respond to outages. TECO's Peoples Gas also said it remains "vigilant" in preparing for the potential effects of Hurricane Dorian. If needed, Peoples Gas employees from other parts of Florida can help restore gas service after the storm.
