Florida Power and Light, along with their mutual assistance partners, are ready to go ahead of Hurricane Dorian.

Hundreds of trucks lined up at the Daytona International Speedway, positioned and ready to respond. Workers from 34 states are in Daytona, prepared to tackle problems in areas hit by the storm.

The restoration workforce is said to be more than 16,000 strong and includes crews that have traveled from out of state. Throughout the day, we have seen numerous trucks come in-and-out of the Speedway as they prepare for the hurricane.

FPL tells WINK News that these convoys include everything from vegetation to line workers and they are all going to be vital to get the power back on safely and quickly as possible.

FPL wants to remind those preparing for the storm to make safety your top priority. When preparing your home, make sure your ladders, scaffolds and tools stay at least 10 feet from power lines.
