The Epcot parking lot at Walt Disney World is being used as a staging area for hundreds of utility trucks in advance of Hurricane Irma.
Duke Energy Florida is projecting that there will be more than 1 million power outages due to Hurricane Irma, which is projected to come up the west coast of Florida.
Duke Energy Florida serves 1.8 million customers in the state.
Duke has mobilized about 8,000 lineworkers, tree professionals, damage assessment and support personnel around the state to be prepared to respond to outages.
