When hurricanes track toward the central Gulf Coast, preparing to respond quickly is a top priority for Alabama Power. That’s why the company counts on the Coastal Weather Research Center at the University of South Alabama (USA) in Mobile, which is often on the front lines of severe storms.

“Weather forecasts are important to Alabama Power, particularly Mobile Division, when we’re making decisions that impact storm planning, such as bringing in crews, setting up staging areas and arranging for outside resources,” said Dee Anne Odom, systems operations manager in the company’s Power Delivery organization and former Mobile Division Distribution Support manager.

“Although we use several weather services, I feel that meteorologists at a local organization like the Coastal Weather Research Center are paying extra attention to the weather in our area. They live here, and they and their families are personally impacted,” Odom said.
