017 Electric Perspectives: An Army of Lineworkers Restoring Power After Hurricane Ida

September 7, 2021

On August 29, Hurricane Ida delivered a devastating direct hit to southeastern Louisiana, and the storm’s remnants caused severe flooding and destructive tornadoes in parts of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. StormGeo Meteorologist Justin Petrutsas joins us to recount the historic nature of this catastrophic Category 4 hurricane. We also speak with former Entergy storm incident commander Greg Grillo, who walks us through some of the challenges that crews are facing as they work to restore power to customers impacted by Ida. We are grateful for the more than 27,000 workers from at least 41 states and D.C. who are committed to the Ida restoration efforts. Join us and #ThankALineworker.
