In preparation for damage from Hurricane Matthew, Kentucky is joining many other states in sending electrical repair crews to Florida.
Kentucky Utilities Spokesman Cliff Feltham says the 130 workers are contractors who normally work on construction, tree trimming, and serve as line crews. He says these workers come from all across Kentucky.
Feltham says sending support to Florida won’t mean diminished service for customers in the Commonwealth. The KU representative says it’s difficult to say where workers will end up in Florida and how long they will stay.
