CPS Energy linecrews are back in San Antonio, after helping along the hurricane ravaged coast.
“Typical after a hurricane, poles down, wires down, houses destroyed,” veteran lineman Will Schneider describing what he saw in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew in Florida.
“Go in, do what you can, get people’s lights on that you can get back on,” he said. “Unfortunately, some of the houses that are destroyed, unsafe to provide power to, you have to leave them disconnected; hopefully they can get repairs and get back on with their lives.”
He and his fellow linecrew members returned to San Antonio Sunday. CPS Energy posted video on its Facebook page.
“Nobody’s ever actually prepared for a devastating disaster like this, no mater how much you try to plan ahead,” he said.
