Alabama Power is urging customers to prepare for the possibility of more severe tropical weather this week as the company prepares its crews to respond quickly and safely following the storm.

Weather forecasters are predicting Tropical Storm Sally will make landfall Tuesday in the northern Gulf of Mexico as a hurricane. Meteorologists at the Alabama Power-USA Coastal Weather Research Center at the University of South Alabama are providing frequent updates about the storm to Alabama Power and other businesses around the Southeast. Steve Kirkham, general manager of Power Delivery for Alabama Power’s Mobile Division, says that information helps his team place crews and resources in areas where they can respond safely to storm damage.

“We are fully prepared to respond,” Kirkham said. “We’re going to do that in a safe and effective manner. Our customers can count on the fact that we are going to respond just as quickly as we can safely do so.”
