When Hurricane Laura wrought devastation throughout the Gulf Coast, many residents in the category 4 storm’s path found themselves without power. Equipped with the know-how, resources and experience to help, a crew from the city of Seguin’s Electric Utilities department stepped up to lend a hand.

At the helm of the crew is Seguin Electric Utilities electric superintendent Freddy King, who has more than 20 years of experience as a lineman, and is no stranger to hurricanes.
