Nebraska Public Power District says it's dispatching 16 line technicians to help restore electricity in some areas left powerless by superstorm Sandy.
The utility said the workers left Wednesday morning for 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 November 7th, but could remain longer if needed by Appalachian Power.
