As Hurricane Florence makes it's way toward the Atlantic coast, Missouri's electric cooperatives are mobilizing to answer the call for help. At the request of Santee Electric Cooperative in Kingstree, S.C., 162 Missouri cooperative line workers from 33 of the state's electric cooperatives will be traveling to South Carolina to assist in the cleanup after the storm has passed. Missouri will be sending both construction and service crews to help with the power restoration efforts.
