Linemen head east to help repair Sandy's wreckageTell North Platte what you think

Sixteen electric distribution line technicians from Nebraska are leaving Wednesday morning to help restore power to areas slammed by Hurricane Sandy along the East Coast.

The Nebraska Public Power District linemen will help the Appalachian Power Company, a division of American Electric Power, in West Virginia.

More than 150,000 Appalachian Power Company customers were reported without power due to blizzard conditions and heavy snow from Hurricane Sandy.

Organizing this assistance is a Midwest Mutual Aid group comprised of utilities in Nebraska, Kansas and Missouri.

“This is just another way that NPPD proves its motto to be ‘Always there when you need us’,” said President and CEO Pat Pope.

Line technicians from Scottsbluff, South Sioux City, Lexington, Ogallala, Norfolk, Sutherland, Shelton, Ainsworth, Humboldt, Gordon, Oakland, York, Atkinson, and Pawnee City operations will help.

They are expected to be in West Virginia through Nov. 7, but could remain longer depending on the damage and needs of the Appalachian Power Company.
