According to LUS, they will be working with "Gainesville Regional Utilities."
That company has assisted here in Louisiana with hurricanes Barry, Laura, Delta and Ida.
As crews from surrounding states are heading to assist, authorities are urging everyone to take this storm seriously as a major threat that will come into Florida over the coming days.
