Tallahassee Utilities Prepare for Hurricane Frances

This is the lifeline to the city's power supply. Storm preparations include making sure workers are in town and on call as well as making sure all the equipment is working.

Kevin Wailes, City of Tallahassee Utilities General Manager, says, "We have crews in the filed riding lines and removing limbs that might cause a problem."

The CH Corn Hydroelectric Power Plant at Lake Talquin will lower its lake level to accommodate the heavy rainfall. Plant officials anticipate being able to deal with the additional flow without downstream flooding.
