Nebraska Public Power District says it's dispatching 16 line technicians to help restore electricity in some areas left powerless by superstorm Sandy.
COLUMBUS, Neb. (AP) - The utility says the workers will leave Wednesday morning and head to West Virginia. They'll be helping workers for Appalachian Power Co., which is a division of American Electric Power. More than 150,000 Appalachian Power customers were reported to be without power because of blizzard conditions and heavy snow spawned by from the superstorm.
The Nebraska workers crews are expected to remain in West Virginia through Nov. 7, but could remain longer if needed by Appalachian Power.
