As hurricane Florence is getting ready to make landfall in the Carolinas this week, local electric co-op New Mac electric is preparing to lend a hand. New-Mac Electric spokesman Josh King shared the details with News Talk KZRG.
“New-Mac is part of a state-wide meeting this morning. And Missouri electric co-operatives as a whole are going to be sending 150 different lineman and equipment.”
The exact number of lineman from New-Mac isn’t clear. Josh says that they will assess the damage and be prepared for the worst as they hope for the best. Once they have a better idea of the situation of those in the affected areas, they will send whatever is needed.
