Safety is our first priority. When a storm threatens, Alabama Power supports you 24/7.

Storm Center functions include:

  • Monitoring weather and staging crews in advance of the storm.
  • Coordinating crew movements in Alabama and with other companies.
  • Coordinating and preparing damage assessment teams and support for our storm operations.
  • Serving as a communication system for media, Alabama Emergency Management Agency, and other organizations.
