Ready And Waiting

As Eastern Carolina watches the tropics, the power companies are doing the same.

Folks at the Greenville Utilities command center keep their eyes on the weather radar all the time.

But during hurricane season, they also do extra training drills for their customer service employees so they'll know what information to tell customers when outages occur.

Greenville Utilities also coordinates with other power agencies across our state and sometimes other states, to help with their emergency needs in the event of a disaster.
