Quote:Entergy sends crews to storm zone

Entergy Texas today sent repair crews and equipment toward New Jersey, which will be a three-day drive for the convoy of trucks and men.

Once there, they likely will be in for two weeks of power restoration as the Middle Atlantic and Northeast recovers from the hybrid hurricane named Sandy that combined with other weather to create lashing rain, wind-driven storm surge, flooding and tropical-force wind that toppled trees.

Entergy Corp.'s four-state operating companies in Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi are sending at least 550 linemen, scouts and tool workers to the stricken areas.

Entergy Texas is sending about 100 from its around its 27-county service territory, said utility spokesman Dave Caplan.

Utilities around the country have mutual assistance pacts to help one another after catastrophes.

After Hurricane Rita in 2005, for example, among the 10,000 or so utility repair workers who descended on Southeast Texas were crews from a New Jersey utility.

Line crews from all over the nation will be converging on the Northeast to help restore power.

Only people with oversized egos believe that mankind has caused global warming.

Scientific Consensus is an Oxymoron

Just had a nasty squall line come through. Thunder/lightning and some power flickering. Apparently we weren't quite through it yet!

I heard 80-100 homes. How horrible.

Some 40,000 still without power here in Michigan. Wind gusts hit 64 MPH at the South Haven Lighthouse (MI) and 69 MPH in Michigan City, IN. Absolutely incredible.

Just saw a story on local news of 59 people so far as of 12:39PM ... they could be wrong though... point is the number is rising still! And there are still some communities rescue crews has not gotten to.

They all had so much warning. So sad. When will people ever learn? Guilty of it myself, deciding to stay and ride out storms when I'm being told to leave.

I agree... I don't mess with storm surge tho... Would have stayed on Melbourne Beach if that wasn't the issue in 2004 during Frances and Jeanne. We moved inland and that was still scary... eye wall went right over our families house... 101 kt winds and the whole house was shaking. Wind can deal with that... surge not so much.
