Appalachian Power is staging more than 30 contractors in southern West Virginia in advance of a winter storm.
Appalachian Power vice president Phil Wright says in a news release that the utility is confident its system will hold up well.
Wright says colder temperatures and a lack of wind should limit widespread outages.
If the extra crews aren't needed after the storm passes, they'll be on standby to help other utilities.
