Alabama Power crews and support teams are headed to Texas to help support restoration of electric service in that state following Hurricane Nicholas.

About 150 Alabama Power line personnel plus support staff left for Houston early Wednesday from multiple locations across the state. They are expected to begin supporting CenterPoint Energy as early as Thursday morning. Joining the Alabama Power teams are about 150 contract crews.

About 300,000 CenterPoint customers lost power because of Nicholas, which made landfall as a hurricane early Tuesday along the Texas coast. As of Wednesday afternoon, what’s left of the storm – now a tropical depression – was stalled over southern Louisiana, delivering heavy rains to a state still mopping up from a devastating Hurricane Ida.
