Our crews have been assisting in restoring service in areas affected by Hurricane Sandy since Oct. 31.
Crews were first dispatched to assist DTE Energy in the Detroit area, including Port Huron and Lapeer. Following restoration to those communities, the crews headed further east to assist Consolidated Edison in New York. After driving 13 hours, our crews arrived Nov. 3 at a staging area at Citi Field and then began working the next day in nearby Queens, N.Y., where the work continues.
Between our employees and contract crews, we have dedicated about 130 personnel resources to the relief effort.
