LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Dozens of Arkansas workers are heading to the Washington, D.C. area to help with the expected storm effects from "Frankenstorm."
The storm, a combination of two storms heading east plus Hurricane Sandy from the tropics, is predicted to leave millions of people on the East Coast without power next week.
Entergy Arkansas is sending 100 workers, 12 of them from the Little Rock area, to assist in case the storm is as damaging as expected.
Entergy workers said utility companies rely on a mutual assistance agreement to help restore power when severe weather strikes. Teams from throughout the Entergy operating system are proud to answer the resource call from utility companies in the northeast.
The group will leave Arkansas at 8 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 27.
