As Hurricane Ida moves northward toward its predicted Sunday evening landfall along the Louisiana coastline, Alabama Power is encouraging its customers to stay weather aware.
Alabama Power’s storm team is prepared to respond to severe weather impacts and provide aid to those in need out of state.
“Our storm team is ready to respond to outages from severe weather caused by Hurricane Ida,” said Corey Sweeney, Alabama Power’s Storm Center Operations manager. “We encourage our customers to be safe, weather aware and follow guidance from local emergency management agencies.”
The National Hurricane Center has issued a storm surge watch on the Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama coasts. As the storm makes landfall, meteorologists say Alabama could experience gusty winds and tornadoes with locally heavy rainfall and flooding conditions.
