Utility workers who were sent east to help restore power lost during Superstorm Sandy have returned home to Nebraska or are headed that way.

Nebraska Public Power District says 16 of its line technicians had ended their work in New Jersey, where they'd been sent after restoring power in parts of West Virginia. NPPD spokesman Mark Becker says they're expected back in Nebraska on Wednesday.

Omaha Public Power District spokeswoman Paula Lukowski says its seven workers were scheduled to return to Omaha on Wednesday as well. They'd been working in New York.

Lincoln Electric System says its crew had already returned.
