Crews that are used to dealing with hurricanes in Florida have been dispatched to the Northeast to help with the effects of Hurricane Sandy.
Florida Power & Light Co. is sending more than 560 employees and nearly 350 trucks, many from our area, to Maryland, Virginia and Washington to help restore power after Sandy passes through the Mid-Atlantic. Additional FPL crews may also be dispatched to assist utilities in those areas.
Three specialists from Miami-Dade Fire Rescue have joined the Federal Emergency Management Agency's search and rescue managers in Washington.
