Minnesota Crews Scheduled to Reach Kissimmee, Florida Today

September 12, 2017

Hurricane Irma mutual aid update: The Minnesota municipal electric utility crews responding to calls for help planned on leaving Cartersville, Georgia around 4:00 a.m. this morning. If all goes as planned, that should put them at Kissimmee Utilities Authority (KUA) around noon/1:00 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 12. Then the real work starts. No travel was allowed yesterday (Sept. 11). The men hunkered down to ride out what was left of the storm in Cartersville, GA., outside of Atlanta. One challenge is finding diesel/gas because of a statewide shortage in Florida. The federal Department of Energy has shared a real-time fuel app, so that should help the travels today. For more information on the MMUA-coordinated mutual aid effort, see the Minnesota Municipal Utilities Association facebook page.
