Duke Energy prepares for East Coast ice storm

Duke Energy’s team of meteorologists continues is monitoring a rare coastal ice storm that is forecast to hit eastern North Carolina and South Carolina January 28.

Line technicians, service crews and other personnel are available throughout the company’s service areas and are ready to respond to outages and emergencies, if they occur.

Also, the company is shifting an additional 300 responders from areas less likely to experience power outages to the coastal areas to assist with outage restoration.

“Storms are unpredictable. Until we are confident in the storm’s path and its impact to our customers, we will keep an appropriate number of resources in our communities throughout the Carolinas to assist with restoration efforts prior to moving them to other areas,” said Jeff Corbett, senior vice president of Duke Energy’s Carolinas Delivery Operations.
