Appalachian Power Offering Free Inspections After Flood

Jun 29, 2016

Appalachian Power says it will pay for electrical inspections necessary to restore power for West Virginia flood victims.

Charleston manager of distribution systems Tom Johnson says the inspection is important to make sure restoring power is safe, even though it may seem like an additional burden for people already going through the aftermath of the storms.

The company said it will pay for the inspections during the flood emergency. It also said it's contributing to flood relief and matching employee contributions to a relief fund.
