From line-men to tree trimmers, the company was fully staffed to make sure they could handle all of the power issues.
   
Officials say the main issue with this storm is ice that would weigh down power lines.

"We can move our workforce around wherever it's need. If we didn't have that extra help it would take more days and hours to get people back on. So that's the one thing that's nice, we can move our workforce where the need is at the time of the need," said Rick Burger of Duke Energy.

Duke Energy officials say they are preparing for the worse case scenario with the storms, and expect power outages to be widespread.
