APCo prepares for winter storm in W.Va.

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Appalachian Power is staging more than 30 contractors in southern West Virginia in advance of a winter storm.

The utility said Wednesday that 32 contractors will be staged in Princeton. They will respond wherever needed on Thursday.

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.
