Alabama power crews headed out west for the winter storm

Posted: Updated:

Alabama Power crews will head to Texas Thursday morning to help restore power to residents affected by the winter storm.

About 100 employees and 60 contractors will be set up at a staging area in Dallas.

"Those workers include not just the line crews, but also the support folks who do safety and logistics and security and information technology," said Alabama Power spokesperson Ike Pigott.

Officials say they will still have enough workers in the state to handle the potential of local weather-related issues.
