IOWANS HELPING: Crews Arrive In New York
The third wave of Alliant Energy crews arrived in New York Tuesday.
The first wave left for New York on October 28th, and many of those workers are still there.
Approximately 205 Alliant energy workers from Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota have responded to the east coast following Hurricane Sandy.
The latest group of 63, including 34 workers from Iowa, will be in the area around West Hempstead, NY working on the natural gas system.
Estimates from the Department of Energy say 67,000 utility workers from 80 different companies are responding to the restoration effort on the East Coast.
