Gulf Power crews, alongside thousands of restoration crew members from 15 states, have restored power to 95% of Gulf Power customers in Jackson and Holmes counties ahead of estimated restoration times. Crews are working around the clock and were able to energize more than 95% of customers north of Interstate 10 in Caryville, Bonifay, Chipley, Graceville and Campbellton restored 24 hours ahead of the original estimate.
“Restoring power to these storm-devastated areas takes a massive coordinated effort. The storm drills that are executed every year, along with the real-life experience through deploying to help others in times of need, have paid off in this extensive restoration effort,” said Adrianne Collins, vice president of Power Delivery. “Everyone involved in this restoration has been encouraged by the support they have felt from our customers, and the entire team is humbled to be part of the effort.”
